Last Chance

The name of this image, “Last Chance”, comes primarily in the way this image was made.

I found this little tree upstream from where this photograph was taken, toppled over in the water. I’m not sure how it got there, but in the days prior to my arrival the area had been hit by strong wind storms.

Seeking a great photo opportunity, I took the tree with clearly broken roots and moved it to an upright position in a spot of late afternoon sunlight.

Is it still there? Definitely not; the rocks would not allow the roots to grab hold. Will it survive? Likely no, and this may have been the little tree’s last chance to enjoy the comforts of life at Duchesnay Falls.
