To get to the falls in Johnston Canyon, you have to walk about 2 km. That sets this part of the workshop apart from the rest. Two kilometers might not sound like a lot, but add the weight of a full package of photography gear, snacks and water, and things start to become more difficult. It is worth though, and as one person that started enjoying nature by hiking, I have nothing to complain about. It also helps you become more aware of the surroundings. Sometimes when photographing the grand scale landscape, we forget about the little details that make it come alive. This part of the trip has both.
Light can be everything for a photographer. The most innocent subject can transform with just the right light. And we had plenty of it that day.
It is interesting how the water goes round the boulder and continues through the canyon.
The waterfall is a popular target for selfies. A lot of people came in while we stood there with our cameras.
It is mysterious how water was able to carve this canyon, yet this enormous boulder survived. Even more impressive all the space in this cave from where I took the picture.
Yet another lesson of good lighting by mother nature. I like how some parts of the tree glow in the warm sunlight.
The bridge were I shot this picture was overcrowded with people that create so much vibration when walking by… No problem for minute-long exposures 🙂
No wonder why I call Canada “Land of Turquoise”. It is neither green nor blue, its the combination that is so prevalent in a vast array of tones.
