To Appear Alive.

CameronFalls_0375 (2)

Cameron Falls, Aux Sable River North of Massey, Ontario.

Beautiful rock structures. Late evening to bring out detail. Low shutter speeds to put character into the flowing water to make it appear alive.

Cameron Falls has many small waterfalls to work with.

Streaky Lines

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.

The Steeples

The evening was getting quite late. I came to a sharp bend in the highway. The mountains were glowing from the setting sun, I quickly set up the camera and tripod. I was able to capture this scene.

Five kilometres in  length,The Steeples form the southern end of the Hughes Range that lies to the east of the Kootenay Valley from east of Columbia Lake to the Bull River that enters the Kootenay at the town of Bull River.

Along The Kootenay River

I was driving home on HWY 95, North of Fort Steele. I stopped at a rest area. The Kootenay River flowed here. I picked up a trail along the banks of the river and explored.

The evening was late. The clouds were heavy. Then all of a sudden the forest was aglow in a wash of light, The mountains in shadow to the left. A touch of color in the sky.

The river continues its journey.

The San Ramon Turn-off

My next stop was between Matagalpa and San Ramon turn off. There is a selection of hills and rocks to work with. Arriving by bus I disembarked at this turn off. Always busy here with local police active at the turn off. This is the time of year when the coffee beans are being picked locally. Therefore anyone coming with a load of coffee beans is pulled over and checked.

When I arrived late afternoon the clouds were heavy. The sun going down. The wind as usual was blowing pretty good. Therefore I was not able to capture low lighting scenes. But I did manage to capture the above scene of this unique hill with a dab of light striking the peak.

That is it for this week. Happy trails.

Cafe in Hand

_MG_9952-Edit

 

A cafe in hand

A chair beckons

A mountainous view

Off to the east

Darkening in the coming

Of the night

A refreshing cool breeze

Dispersing the day’s heat

The parrots have returned

To where ever they roost

The white plumed garza

Long since gone

The sky dark and threatening

Clouds a somber grey

A beam of light

Emerging from the clouds

To cast a golden ray

In a moment of glory

Over a rounded hill

As the clouds roll on

The light slowly fades

Darkness descends once again

The dogs gathered round

Their heads on paws

A kitten purring

Comfortably on my lap

Enjoying the cooling even

While I sip my cafe
