Athabasca Falls, Jasper



Athabasca Falls, 93A, IceFields Parkway, Canada, July 2014

5D Mk II, 16 -35 L II @ 16mm , ISO 100, 1.6 s , 3 G-S Singh Ray GND

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.

  1. Wow, that is such a stunning shot…it brings me the feeling of depth. I think it is due to the great lighting of the sun on the mountains that contrasts so well with the deep, crisp shadows of the waterfall/cliff below. Well done.
