This an interesting photo that defines The colored streaks on the mountain side. My guess is that the line patterns are the result of avalanches over the years. Now with the sun low in the evening. The foreground is darker than the mountain top. The warm sun is highlighting the exposed rock created by the avalanche.
I was standing up on a hill looking into this river valley. A railway track to the left. The river flowing past. The foreground lit by the sun. The mountain darkening.
Evening has come. The lighting is soft. The fields are dry. No rain.
It was marvelous to look across the field towards the mountains, the West Kootenay Mountains near Cranbrook BC
Premier Lake, Premier Provincial Park, BC
Late evening, low lighting
A touch of yellow. Dense evergreen forests. Rock structure. Plenty of driftwood.
This made for a nice misty, dreamy scene. Simple and effective.
Very strong on the greens in various shades.
A hint of reflections
I continued hiking and searching for photo opportunities outside of Cranbrook. I spotted this particular scene with added color. With the mountains in the background. Color on the ground for the foreground made for a pleasing scene.
Of interest was I noticed signs of Mule deer. There was an area where they bedded for the night. A pond was near by.
I created this beautiful Panoramic at Whiteswan Lake in Whiteswan Provincial Park BC . The original size measured 51 inches by 16 inches.
I discovered this interesting rock face of this portion of the Rocky Mountains, North of Cranbrook BC on to Fort Steele. I traversed the Kootenay Highway . By adjusting my camera angle, creating a tight composition I managed to capture this image.
