Fog and Pine at Sunrise on Clear Lake in late June 2008. The "dots" on the photo are mayfly spinners from a HUGE hatch the evening before.

kanoes and silentbeard:

Kanoes is correct. Silentbeard's picture is not of a pine. Silentbeard's Genus Cedrus is indeed in the Family Pinaceae but, unfortunately, the two species in the genus, the cedar of Lebanon, and deodar cedar, do not occur in the wild in North America.

The white cedar occurring in the BW belongs to the genus Thuja, a member of the cypress family, Cupressaceae.

With the above having been said, I must add that I am generally in favor of granting poetic license.

Kanoes: If you so wish, you may redirect your bow to a generally westward direction.

Kanoes/moose plums - thanks for the comments!

I have to say that you all have helped to create a monster :D. We just got back from our first trip to the BWCA a couple weeks ago, and all of the advice and wisdom on this board was INVALUABLE! It's great to now be able to share a bit of my own perspective from this stunning place.

Red Beard - awesome reds in your sunset shot! You're living up to your name...

The beauty of Pines and Fir is the green they provide right after the awakening of ice out.

La Croix Island Pine 2008

this pine is on a island on LLC that i must have paddled by
a dozen times. this year with no timetable for returning
i explored the smaller bays and islands. unlike the wonderful
stands of Red Pine and the huge Whites i thought this tree
stood out as a example of old weather blasted ones that have
hung on over the years.

Sorry to cut and paste on ya', but the topic was "pines"
