Kananaskis, First Snow

I got out on the Friday morning for an early shoot in Kananaskis and I was met by an inch of snow outside my front door.  Rather excitedly, I carried on to the back country and the snow had raised up to two inches off the grass.

I went to the South end of Barrier Lake and walked along the beach looking for images that would convey an autumn snowfall.  This was my favourite, taken just off the water across the lake.

It would have been great to get a bit of sunlight this morning but it was very beautiful and quiet.  A really wonderful morning up in the mountains.

O’Shaughnessy Falls in Kananaskis along Highway 40 near Barrier Lake.

I’ve driven by this small set of rapids a number of times and this looked like a great morning to stop and look for some different looks to this waterfall.

A bit of a hike up along the stream into the forest, I liked this scene of a lone flower amid the dark trunks and patches of snow on the ground.  It has been a strange year weather-wise and this first image in this post seemed to speak to that.  Below is a couple of alternative compositions of that scene.

    • It’s raining again today, no snow, so we’re back to
      “normal”. It would be fun to get a few more weeks before the snow comes back – we’ll see!
