Natural Landscapes: Fighting the flow
SUNWAPTA RIVER, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
This boulder (and I assume it’s a boulder and not rock that’s been sculpted to look like a boulder) is perched just above Sunwapta Falls in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. This photograph is my second attempt at the boulder; years before, I used a Pentax medium format film camera and put the boulder dead-centre. This time, I move it above the vertical centre, so it would appear to be battling the forces of the river. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter, probably one or two darkening filters as well.
