[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Snass Creek at an elevation of 1800 metres just before it feeds into Punchbowl Lake. This creek and the area was used extensively in the mid 1800's as a pack route into the BC interior. Today the Watcom trail, which leads up to the Puchbowl and these headwaters, is a protected heritage trail.

A wonderful small and so clear stream. Looks ripe for panning? I see no bedrock though and this is an important part of panning for gold. Still looks quite drinkable. Any ranging cattle or such nearby?

I think the combination of clearness of the water and the color in the rocks, plus whatever technique you use to get the motion of the water, really make this shot.

This conveys a feeling of peace as well as force. You captured the intense strength and speed of the water's motion. Lovely shot!
I'm still playing with my filter and will probably post a landscape tomorrow.
