Welcome to Sarah Bettey Photography, featuring photos

One of the most distinct features of Timothy Lake are the many stumps left behind from when the dam was built at the south end in 1956, regulating the flow to Harriet Lake downstream and creating the lake we know today. The roots of this stump are still entwined and I think it is incredible that the old reminders of the forest that once was still exist after all these years.

  10. I found myself enchanted by roots while hiking last week (well always in the mountains) the grow right around massive boulders... the will to survive and thrive is amazing isn't it? Beautiful photo as always!
