Photographer's Note

As one climbs steeply out of the St. John River Valley east of Bristol, the landscape becomes rugged, with high hills, deep clefts, and vast river systems interspersed with swampland. This is a recreational paradise, dotted here and there by tiny communities with quaint names like Glassville and Moose Mountain.

The area survives as a largely unspoiled habitat for animals, where hunters and fishermen roam and seldom are tourists seen. The nearby community of Juniper contains a large lumber mill currently closed because of market conditions, its employees well used to being laid off from time to time or working for a new owner every so many years. Juniper is situate on the south branch of the SW Miramichi River, the stream which over the centuries attracted many Canadian prime ministers and American presidents as the prime salmon fishing river in eastern North America.

Technical note: Aside from sharpening and one tweak of contrast in PP with some noise removal in the sky, there was no enhancement by way of saturation or hue.
