Natural landscapes: the lake’s brooding beauty
RAINY MORNING AT CHIEF HECTOR LAKE, NEAR MORLEY, ALBERTA
I was on my home after an uninspiring photo trip when I decided to check out this lake in the Rocky Mountain foothills. As you can see, it was a brilliant decision that made the entire trip worthwhile.
By the time I reached this spot, my hiking boots were soaked through and my pants were soaked above the knees. But it was all worth it to capture the silence, the stillness, and the distant mist. The rain resumed as I walked back to the car, but my raincoat was up to the challenge and I have inspiring pictures like this. 🙂
