Franklin Falls, Nov 2014, Pacific North West

a week of unusually cold temperatures made some of the waterfalls around this part freeze. This was a very short hike at a very short driving distance from my backyard !

Upper Tipsoo Lake Trail, Mt Rainier, July 2014

While waiting out for sunset at Tipsoo Lake, the pattern in the leaves made for a compelling image. processed (mostly for contrast) using the in-camera JPEG , Sony RX 100 (V1),  which is now increasingly becoming my travel companion. Note to self to enable the RAW Capture !

name identification of this plant species is welcome :)

Athabasca Falls is one of the numerous falls (& highlights) along the scenic IceFields Parkway, the iconic highway that connects Banff and Jasper. I am pretty satisfied with this shot where a lot of things came together. Till about two hours earlier, it wasn’t possible to stand where this photograph is taken from without being jostled around by swarming tourists, but I had the entire place to myself to very patiently compose and setup this shot.
