It is an interesting drive up the side of a mountain on a active logging road. Then it is a winding steep drive down the other side of the mountain to Lussier Hotsprings. The hotsprings are located in Whiteswan Provincial Park.
The Lussier River flows here. I walked down the trail to the river. I commence to capture the river with its Fall colors. It was a cloudy, cool day. As you will notice there is bits and pieces of Fall color here and there.
I was standing in an open field back a ways behind Whiteswan Lake. There I created this composition withe unique rock face. The location is Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park
Dark rolling clouds. Cold temperatures. My hands were getting numb. I strolled down a logging road till I got a clear view of the above scene. Looking good.
Whiteswan Provincial Park, BC
I was walking along the shore of Whiteswan Lake, I noticed water entering the lake.
I followed the stream up into the woods. The scene that you see here is what caught my eye. A little bit busy, but okay. There is enough color to enhance the composition
I saw this scene as I was driving along a road following the Rocky Mountains. The fields covered in lush green grass. Mountains in the background. The Fall colors are just starting in early September. I don’t know, but I just fell in love with this whole area.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The White River is a major headwaters tributary of the Kootenay River in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. The river is 65 kilometres (40 mi) long and drains an isolated area of the Canadian Rockies east of the village of Canal Flats.
It rises at Sylvan Pass, in a precipitous glacial basin in Height of the Rockies Provincial Park. It flows southwards through a deep valley along the Park Ranges, then swings southwest to receive the North Fork from the right. The river then makes a broad northwestward curve around the south flank of Flett Peak, passing Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park. It then flows generally north-northwest, emptying into the Kootenay on the left bank.
The White is a large, steep, fast flowing glacial river and can be up to 60 metres (200 ft) wide as it nears the mouth. The river’s drainage basin of some 987 square kilometres (381 sq mi) consists almost entirely of virgin forest.
