Elbow Falls in winter’s clothing again

With fresh snow on the ground, I went back up to Elbow Falls to see how the valley would look in a return to winter clothing.  I was there only a week ago and the change, beyond the cold, was significant.  I love snow-covered landscapes so I found this visit to Kananaskis to be a very beautiful one.  I think spring is coming soon but when winter is this pretty, I don’t mind a little delay.

    I love everything about the top image. Love the 50/50 foreground/background interest, the low angle background lighting and it’s nice you had a touch of clouds in the sky. Well done for sure. My kind of image. Nature is the true master and it’s always rewarding when we can be there to see it in person and be lucky enough to capture it as well. TFS!
