I spent the whole day surrounded by beauty. I drove up the side of the mountain. I drove down the other side of the mountain. Before me was a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. This was White Swan Provincial Park. There are two lakes located here. Alces Lake and Whiteswan Lake. The above photo shows the back end of Whiteswan Lake.
The camera is set up on the tripod. The composition is ready. The wind is fickle. One moment it is calm. Then a breath of wind disturbs part o your scene. A ripple upon the lake surface. You wait and you wait. Then, the wind is gone. A photo is shot. The wind comes again. You quietly wait. The calm returns. A photo is shot. The sun breaks through among dark clouds. There is brightness on the mountains. A beautiful composition has been created. Whew.
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.
Fisher Peak is the highest of the Southern Rocky Mountains. It dominates Cranbrook’s Eastern skyline. The peak has an elevation of 9336 feet.
I seem to always be looking at a hazy scene. I was surrounded by beautiful homes where I set up my camera equipment. I spent a good couple hours photographing here.
We were driving along the highway in Banff National Park in Alberta. There were many scenes to admire as we drove along. This particular scene was eye catching.
The foreground has been ravaged by fire.
The mountain peak covered in early snow
From a recent snow fall
In the late Fall
Turbulent clouds swirling
Dipping to touch the peak of the mountain
There is peace and quiet standing here. Let your eyes absorb the beauty. Let the day be yours. In the surrounding mountains.
The mountains in the background. Rocky shoreline. A point of land with color. This allowed me to create this composition. The photo had originally been posted in color.
