majestic mountains

Kicking Horse Campground (Yoho National Park) and Field, B.C., offer majestic mountain panoramas of the Rocky Mountains. This image is of Mount King, part of the Van Horne Range, as it towers on the horizon.

I love everything about this image. It is so simple and emulates a sense of depth and height with the three ‘layers’ captured—the ground (the trees), the mountains and the clouds in the sky. What is most striking is the great contrast of light in this image—the different colours of the grey reflected in the trees, the jagged snow-capped peaks, and the various shades of the clouds. 

The result is a a very moody image.
