Details Sunwapta Falls

 

Sometimes when you are out shooting pictures, you get really focused on the “trophy” shots, the sweeping vistas and grand landscapes. Occasionally you need to step up and take a closer look at the environment and find something eye catching. I thought the patterns of snow and ice on the rocks inside the falls looked interesting.

Box Canyon Falls

Tucked into a tiny corner, hidden just off of the Coquihalla Highway, there is a little water feature that is one of my favourites.

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.

Hidden Falls

Hidden Falls

 

On one of my hikes in Banff National Park, back in the 1980’s, I came across this little gem of a waterfall. In the days before GPS and EXIF data, the location was lost, but the image remains.

Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls

If you are a scientific sort of person, you could calculate that, at a 44° angle from the sun the light refraction will create a rainbow on rain or water spray. I mostly just wander around and take pictures. I’m thinking that this might be Johnson’s Canyon in Banff National Park, but I could be wrong. Shooting film there is now EXIF or GPS information that is embedded, until you digitize the file.
