This scene with the solitary alpine larch on the edge of the lake has intrigued me for years. But how to capture the heart and soul of the place? Being here in the fall with the larches a smoky gold set ablaze by the setting sun helps. But the ribbon of blue water, splashed by drops of gold, transforms the scene into a mythical dream. I love the sinuous curves that lead the eye to the golden reflections in the lake. The music of two little streams feeding the lake filled the air. Canada jays sang their evening songs. An American Dipper searched for her evening meal along the water’s edge. Surrounded by beauty and life, I could live in this scene for a long time.

|Hanger Height||See example illustration below.
Take your picture center height, add half the picture height, subtract the height of the wire (around 4 inches).
For example, say that you want the center at 58 inches and your picture size is 60x28 inches.
58 + 28/2 - 4 = 58 + 14 - 4 = 68 inches.
Now measure from the floor up 68 inches. This is where the bottom of your picture hanger hooks should go.
The middle of your picture should sit at 58 inches (eye height) from the floor.
|Hanging Picture||Lift the picture and place the wire onto the hooks. Gently lower. Level the picture by lifting slightly and moving it side-to-side.|
