[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There's a small tarn at Tombstone Pass with a small creek heading west from the pass. This is the creek here as it's coming from the tarn. I can't remember offhand what those little white puffy flowers are called. They look like little tufts of cotton.

Very beautiful scene. Nice colors and it gives a feel of calmness. I think a circular polorizer would have helped with the glare here, but still a great photo.

Hi Tim. a lovely picture, with good colours, very clear water the white flowers set it of ,well done..

I think it is Alaska Cotton Grass (Eriophorum) although I think I have heard it called Yukon Cotton too. I've seen something very similar growing in the Sierra Nevada also. This is a nice peaceful scene. I agree that a polarizer may have helped especially with those nice underwater rocks in the foreground. The whole image feels just a tad yellow to me. My Mac monitor is pretty good on color because I photograph people's paintings all the time and it has to be correct.

Thanks for sharing yet another image of a special place. I guess that in August you were after mosquito season. I remember swarms of them in Inuvik.

Hello Tim,
It's a very nice scene. Pitbogs are always some kind of mysterious places. I like the colour of vegetation, cropping the sky out and the Eriophorum flowers in the foreground.
Best greetings,

hi Tim

Nice landscape of mountain here, this "cotton" are wonderfull!


nice compsition with the water rock flowers and grass. it's a little dark though. i lightened it up a bit in a workshop

Hi Tim,

Simple but effective. The creek gives a nice movement to the picture and the puffy flowers and rock adds to the composition.

Hello Tim

Hello Tim,
I like those tones of colors, composition and POV. There is a great mood in this picture. I like those details and these little white flowers a lot. The WS is interesting but I think that I prefer your darker version. Thanks,
