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.
Evening has come. The lighting is soft. The fields are dry. No rain.
It was marvelous to look across the field towards the mountains, the West Kootenay Mountains near Cranbrook BC
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.
Dark rolling clouds. Cold temperatures. My hands were getting numb. I strolled down a logging road till I got a clear view of the above scene. Looking good.
Whiteswan Lake, Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park.
The buildings you see in the photo, I believe is a lodge.
This is the Northwest corner of Whiteswan Lake.
