Fresh Snow

Fresh Snow

 

I love the look of clean, fresh, untrammelled snow. Being in the mountains makes the experience even better. Shooting into the sun, with the low hanging clouds, cranks up the contrast to the max.

Leaning Tree

Leaning Tree

 

The high runoff in the spring raises the water level and increases the erosion and undermines the trees on the edge. When there is no longer enough soil to support the roots, gravity takes hold and pulls the tree over.

Water Flow

Water Flow

 

From a couple of years ago, just off of the Icefields Parkway between Lake Louise and Jasper. I had tried for a longer shutter speed to smooth out the water, and wish I was able to make an exposure at an even longer exposure, to make the water even smoother.

I do remember a great day in the mountains with a great view.

Before Moonset, Yaki Point

Before Moonset, Yaki Point

 

In order for the moon to be full, it must be on the opposite side of the earth from the sun. So, moonrise happens at sunset and moonset happens at sunrise. Two days after the full moon the moon is still in the sky when the sun is up. The sun is up high enough to reach into the canyon but hasn’t reached the Colorado River at the bottom of the gorge.

Morning In The Canyon

Morning In The Canyon

 

Early or late in the day is when I think the Grand Canyon looks the best. The strong cross lighting highlights the deep crevasses in the rock formations showing the textures and patterns of the strata.
