To stand before these mountains The giants of the world Is a humbling experience
The Rocky Mountains took shape during an intense period of plate tectonic activity that resulted in much of the rugged landscape of western Canada A close look at the structure of the mountain will show you the layers of sedimentary rock that created this mountain. The Canadian Rockies are composed of layered sedimentary rock such as limestone and shale.
It was a cloudy morning on the shores of Lake Minniwanka Banff National Park. The lake water was not calm. I looked across to the far shore. The above composition caught my eye. I love the variation of the line patterns that can be seen. The dark shadows in the foreground to the ruggedness of the landscape create a unique composition.
AS we drove through Kootenay National Park, my brother Bob stopped at Simpson Monument. I instantly fell in love with this location. The mountain slopes show the remains of a forest fire from the past.
