Jasper’s landscapes in winter

The week I spent in the Jasper National Park at the end of October coincided with a heavy snowstorm which gripped the park area for most of the week and gave winter a firm grasp over it.  I was there to photograph wildlife with a small group but stole a few opportunities to capture the landscape freshly trimmed with its winter coat.

During a scout along the Athabasca River looking for tracks, I stopped to work into this scene for a few minutes.  With a bit of time to find something to work with in the foreground, waterproof(ish) boots so I could set up out in the water a bit and a polarizer all helped to realize what I had in mind.  Namely, a subtle winter landscape in this national park.

The last day had some of the heaviest snow in the morning but also afforded the only sunshine of the week.  This image was along the river’s edge east of Jasper a little while before the clouds started to knit back together.
