Natural landscapes: the icy queen
QUEEN OF MALIGNE ICE FORMATION, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
This formation, in Maligne Canyon in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, forms every winter. It’s probably the most awe-inspiring ice formation in the canyon, thus its name.
As you can see, I was there on an overcast day with little colour, so it made sense to transform this picture into black-and-white. I also darkened the featureless white sky so your eye would not be drawn to it.
