Natural landscapes: the glorious valley view
ATHABASCA RIVER AND PEAKS, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
I visited this lookout in the Canadian Rocky Mountains the previous afternoon when the light was all wrong, so I returned at sunrise the next day and captured this stunning example of God’s glorious creation. The colour version is good, but I wanted a more classic Ansel Adams-style version to show you.
(Here’s a colour view from same lookout, looking in the opposite direction: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-19a.)
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the peaks and sky.

So much drama in this image, Frank. The clouds create their own line of peaks. A beautiful scene
