Natural landscapes: when November looks like January
YOHO NATIONAL PARK,
I parked on the side of the Trans Canada Highway, near the Alberta-British Columbia border, and waded through 18 inches of snow to reach a viewpoint where I could clearly see the gobsmacking beauty of this mountain stream in late autumn.
There wasn’t much colour in this scene, so it was a no-brainer to go black-and-white. The other thing I had to do was go for a long exposure to make the water silky and help lead your eyes on a diagonal path through the picture.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, two neutral density (darkening) filters
