Dark Rolling Clouds

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

Storm Clouds

Storm clouds were approaching. I was photographing Whiteswan lake at Whiteswan Provincial Park BC when i notice storm clouds rolling along at the mountains. I had two yellow clumps of shrubs in front of me. A stand of dark green evergreens in the middle . Then the background with the Rocky Mountains and the rolling storm clouds.

Thus giving me the depth of field that I like.

Happy New Year everyone

Thanks for supporting my work in 2019

 

White River, BC

WhiteRiver

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The White River is a major headwaters tributary of the Kootenay River in southeastern British ColumbiaCanada. 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.

Patience, Patience

Patience, Patience. That is what its all about. Unlike my painterly friends who can create how they want. I must wait for the right moment to happen. Whether it is today, tomorrow or sometime in the future, I must wait for the components to fall in place. The lake to be calm. The lighting to be just right. The right cloud cover. This is the game I must play to get the composition I want.

Then you get a day when everything fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. Then I will lock in and start shooting. I have been creating photographic works for many years now. I do not even think anymore. I just perform. I am a happy man doing my thing.

The bottom line of all this is you enjoy the wonders of nature. You breathe the clean, clear air around you. The scenes before you capture your heart, taking your breath away.

 

Whiteswan Provincial Park

I spent the whole day surrounded by beauty. I drove up the side of the mountain. I drove down the other side of the mountain. Before me was a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. This was White Swan Provincial Park. There are two lakes located here. Alces Lake and Whiteswan Lake. The above photo shows the back end of Whiteswan Lake.

The camera is set up on the tripod. The composition is ready. The wind is fickle. One moment it is calm. Then a breath of wind disturbs part o your scene. A ripple upon the lake surface. You wait and you wait. Then, the wind is gone. A photo is shot. The wind comes again. You quietly wait. The calm returns. A photo is shot. The sun breaks through among dark clouds. There is brightness on the mountains. A beautiful composition has been created. Whew.
