What caught my attention when I stopped to absorb the view from the Mt. Cheam trail was how the noon sunlight illuminated the leaves in the foreground; and I noticed how the coloring graduated to blue, and eventually white, as it moved toward the distance. That is the slope of Lady Peak to the left; beyond the jagged peaks away to the south lies the US border.
Minor color adjustments, sharpening, resizing. Enjoy.

very nice shot ,makes me want to go out there every day and x-plore the back trails.
What you see in the distance in the middle of the shot is Slesse peak to the right is the Canadian Boarder Peaks and to the right above the pine tree is the American Boarder Peak.
Check out some of my shots and you will see these points of interest from different angles. I will post a shot that I took last year from Mt.Mc.Guire looking back to the Cheam Range and it looks so small.

A well composed scene of the trail, with excellent DOF. The steep mountain on the left and your foreground greenery nicely sets off the mountains in the distance. An excellent capture.

Well I think you found a lovely photo op at thie place. I always tend to stay away from the shots towards the sunlight. This however turned out in your favour. Your camera really has turned out a nice one. Oh of course the person who clicked teh shutter has a bright mind too.
I notice your Fraser River photo will not allow ctritiques. Did you click a button that will not allow them? I am not sure what happened.Cheers as always. I am glad you enjoyed your hike up here. The pictures on Cheam confirm it,

I find your fade to blue haze very appealing and enhances the panoramic setting. Just great.
In deference to your intro on post-processing that I so applaud and concur with, I only cropped in my workshop. I just had to see what it would look like without the floating white clouds. i wonder if they pulled the eye out of the wonderful perspective you have here?
