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 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.
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.
I was standing in an open field back a ways behind Whiteswan Lake. There I created this composition withe unique rock face. The location is Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park
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.
I saw this scene as I was driving along a road following the Rocky Mountains. The fields covered in lush green grass. Mountains in the background. The Fall colors are just starting in early September. I don’t know, but I just fell in love with this whole area.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The White River is a major headwaters tributary of the Kootenay River in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. 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.
The fast moving mist or clouds created an ever changing scene. The clearing of the mist exposed this odd shaped rock structure.
