Blowing snow abstracts along the Continental Divide

After hiking along the Boom Lake trail last weekend, I drove into the Kootenay National Park for a little ways.  I stopped when I noticed the snow blowing off of the peaks along the Ball Range that is a line of mountains along the Continental Divide.  Looking up from the British Columbia – Alberta border on Highway 93, the snow was backlit by the sun which had still not risen above the wall created by Storm Mountain, Beatrice Peak and Stanley Peak.

Wind pushed veils of cloud up the valley obscuring the ridgeline for seconds or minutes.  When the view was clear, it presented a constantly changing scene as the snow lifted into the air.

  5. Your capture and, in particular, the blowing snow create a great sense of drama that brings this rocky promontory alive. Very nice.
