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.

Evening Clouds

Evening Clouds

 

This time the clouds at sunset are front lit, but the layers of cloud in front are creating shadows and shaded clouds. This gives the image more depth, the clouds more texture.

Canyon View From The Rim Trail

Canyon View from the Rim Trail

 

Meanwhile, back at the Grand Canyon, there is just so much to see and although it is recognizable every shot seems to be different. Taken in the late afternoon, I like the sun highlighting the formations on the opposite rim. It shows off the interesting patterns in the way that the erosion has worked it’s magic on the strata of the canyon.
