Photographer's Note

This is the church on a native reservation near Fort Langley. The fort was built by the Hudson's Bay Company, which has operated in Western Canada for the last 400 years (yes, it still operates now, though mainly in form of retail department stores). When the Hudson't Bay Company arrived the aboriginal people who lived in the area were encouraged to convert from their native beliefs to Christianity, partly because of genuine relious zeal, and partly because of a desire to pacify the natives and make them more friendly to the Europeans. The church looks pretty lonely these days, missing part of it's cross, but it still stands and still gathers a crowd on Sunday.

Shot just before sunset, using a polarizer to bring the clouds out.
