Here are some still images captured from the video I shot at Bute / Homathko. I am so regretting not taking a still camera on that trip. Capturing stills from video is very time consuming and the quality of the result sucks. Anyway here are the final images tweaked in Aperture 3, the colors are kinda off .... whatever.

Hard to beleive Perry and I spent only 2 nights there.

No sign of old growth Homathko forest in the valley anymore. Can this place survive another hit of industrialization ?
