There is a unique feeling observing clouds below the mountain peaks. It gives you a whole different prospective of your surroundings. It means you have moved up the ladder higher in the sky. Maybe someday you could even walk in the clouds. Now that would be cool.
This is a view of St Mary’s Lake BC. It is a view of the back end of the lake. My brother Bob and I turned on to a gravel logging road. The road climbed ‘higher and higher till we were traveling above St. Mary’s Lake. As is always the case on these roads, you are enclosed by trees on either side of you. When an open towards the lake appears,you can pull over and photograph.
Now here we have a scene of tremendous depth. The valley between the mountains goes to infinity. The shadows are deep. Beautiful clouds to fill the background.
My brother and I were travelling along Hwy 93 North in Banff National Park, Alberta. Ahead of us was Bow Summit. We pulled over,off the road. I set up my tripod and camera. So I had the snow covered mountains , open scrub land and highway 93. Thus the composition I created is what you see above. The two cars give you the perspective of the mountain height.
I would like to take this time to thank everyone for joining me on Linkedin. By sharing my photographic work, It is my desire to show that Canada is a beautiful country. It only takes a moment in our busy lives to stop and observe our surroundings. There is beauty everywhere.
From my family to your family, Happy New Year. Please be safe
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.
