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 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.
The joys of art when one discovers something unique. I was at Fort Steele near Cranbrook BC. I noticed this old building at the edge of a field. So off I went crossing the highway. As I approached the building I could see Fisher Peak in the background. Now here was a bonus.
The composition became the old house with the mountains in the background. The yellow of the grass complimenting the house and the green of the evergreens. I spent a happy two hours here watching the play of lighting and moving clouds.
This house was built sometime in the 1920s or early 1900.
Fisher Peak is the highest of the Southern Rocky Mountains. It dominates Cranbrook’s Eastern skyline. The peak has an elevation of 9336 feet.
I seem to always be looking at a hazy scene. I was surrounded by beautiful homes where I set up my camera equipment. I spent a good couple hours photographing here.
