Along The Kootenay River

_MG_1991_5195

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.

Rest Area

A beautiful little lake located just off of Hwy 95. The Kootenay Hwy North of Fort Steele BC. It is designated as a rest area. With the mountains in the background, calm waters and Rainbow Trout feeding on the surface.

I spent considerable time at this location waiting for the right conditions to photograph.

Finally I was able to stitch together a panoramic composition as you see above.
