Natural landscapes: the start of freeze-up


November is an ideal month for photographing in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Freeze-up has begun, but there’s still open water in creeks and waterfalls to find excellent water-ice compositions. This creek flows out of Johnson Lake near the town of Banff. I usually visit it every winter to see what water-ice combinations I can photograph. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

  1. Beautiful capture Frank! I love the combination of ice and smooth flowing water. We tried to find some of it in Banff last weekend but it was probably a little bit too warn still.
