Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Adventure Day 22, July 20
It was a lousy day for walkabouts, photography and sinuses thanks to the fog and the smoke plume from the wild fires. All of my photographs were compromised. I pity the millions of sentient creatures who are dying in these fires, mostly alone and in agony. We have done terminal damage. This is the price of reckless greed and disregard for the natural world. The human species has lost its moral right to oversee this planet or to exist as a species. Armageddon in the form of a planet killer is needed now so that this marvelous rock in space can once again thrive. This will happen sooner or later.
In Nova Scotia clear cut (strip logging) is permitted in wilderness areas including provincial parks. I ran across some forest butchering in Chignecto Provincial Park. These guys are stripping 6-10 inch diameter trees and leaving a wasteland in their wake.
I experimented with some fog/smoke editing techniques to try to save the day's photos but at best they will only serve to remind us of this sad day.
