Wedge Pond Mists

With the early snows of the past week, I was eager to get into the mountains to see how things looked up there this weekend.  I went up to Wedge Pond which sits below Mount Kidd in Kananaskis.  This small, shallow pot lake is a great location in the fall as it is ringed by a variety of trees and catches the mountain’s reflection in its quiet waters.

It was overcast when I headed out but the sky was more promising in the mountains.  Before dawn, the mist started to rise off the water.  It was cold and seemed to be perfect conditions for the creation of low clouds and heavy mist.  That worked for me and I enjoyed photographing along the shoreline through sunrise.

The leaves on the deciduous trees are just starting to change color so I will make sure to return in a couple of weeks to catch their golds and oranges.  The elk rut should start around the same time so I’m looking forward to hearing their bugling in the forest surrounding the pond then too.

    Our family had picnic at Wedge pond on labour day afternoon. This was my first time there. I never know this pond can be so beautiful in the early morning. Thanks for sharing those amazing pictures.
