Playing The Angles

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.

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

 

White River, BC

WhiteRiver

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The White River is a major headwaters tributary of the Kootenay River in southeastern British ColumbiaCanada. The river is 65 kilometres (40 mi) long and drains an isolated area of the Canadian Rockies east of the village of Canal Flats.

It rises at Sylvan Pass, in a precipitous glacial basin in Height of the Rockies Provincial Park. It flows southwards through a deep valley along the Park Ranges, then swings southwest to receive the North Fork from the right. The river then makes a broad northwestward curve around the south flank of Flett Peak, passing Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park. It then flows generally north-northwest, emptying into the Kootenay on the left bank.

The White is a large, steep, fast flowing glacial river and can be up to 60 metres (200 ft) wide as it nears the mouth. The river’s drainage basin of some 987 square kilometres (381 sq mi) consists almost entirely of virgin forest.
