Firehole Falls

Firehole Falls 2

 

Taken a few years ago in Yellowstone National Park, I found the falls on the Firehole River to be very picturesque. There are many more things to see in the park than just geysers. A slower shutter speed helps smooth the water into a creamy flow over the rocks in the falls.

Herbert Lake

Herbert Lake

 

Herbert Lake is one of the lesser known lakes in the Canadian Rockies. It’s a small lake that’s nestled in a small valley that’s a bit protected from the winds in the area. Usually, it’s one of my first stops after I enter the Icefields Parkway from the south at Lake Louise.

Thin Ice

Wherever you have moving water in the winter in this area, the temperature fluctuations affect the water flow. The resulting drop in water level creates passages under the snow and ice caps, revealing small alcoves and grottoes. The lowered stream fell below the previously formed ice and created a knife edge.

Desert Basin

When leaving Newspaper Rock in the Petrified Forest National Park, I noticed a dark spot on the top of a large rock. On closer investigation, I found it to be an indentation about a foot and a half across and six inches deep. I’m not sure where the water came from. The October weather was fairly mild and I don’t know when the last rainfall had taken place.

Sunset And Water

Sunset And Water 7

 

Looking back on some of my older images, I thought I would share a few that stand out.

After a very rainy spring a nearby field was partly flooded. I liked the reflection of the sunset in the water.
