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.

Simple And Effective

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

Blue Skies and The Kootenays

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.

Streamside

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

 

Depth And Contrast

_MG_2342_5765

When I first looked at this scene, I saw a lot of contrast and depth.

The yellow colored shrubs in the foreground. The dark evergreens behind.

Then the mountains in the background in great detail.

The dark clouds swirling around.

As a different tack, I showed less sky and more foreground in this composition.

The photo was taken in Whiteswan Provincial Park
