Natural landscapes: tiny moments of autumn glow

FALL LEAVES, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA

I went on what was for me an epic hike – a 16-kilometre round trip – behind Lake Louise in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Just a few kilometres in, I discovered this shrub with colours that were practically fluorescent, and it stopped me for the next 20 minutes. It intrigued hikers who were walking past; they couldn’t figure out what I was photographing until I let them look in the viewfinder. Then they were gobsmacked.  🙂
Because of the soft, featureless grey background, this photo looks like it could have been made in a studio. But what you’re seeing is an out-of-focus shallow pool of greyish water, made so by suspended particles of glacial matter.
