Hi All,
I dedicate this image of a small waterfall on the Cameron Creek in Waterton Lakes National Park to Oana for sending me a nice Email, wondering where I had gone. This is a favorite place of mine and I am never pleased with my attempts to capture its beauty, but this is one of my better attempts. I have been busy with work, renovations and yard work in preparation for holidays which start on May 1. We did manage to take the trailer to Waterton on the weekend to check it out. No bears, but a massive elk herd that I will post some images from later. I hope everyone is well, Jane how is that knee doing?
Have a great weekend Rick

Hi Rick,
it is so anymore I barely have time to scratch my nose let alone go TrekNature to view anything let alone make any sort of reviews.Seeing this beautiful place you have photoed is an inspiration to say the very least and I'm glad I happened to stop by this evening.I see nothing in terms of exposure or colour that can be a whole lot better with the photo,except to say it looks a wee bit soft in the focus and that brings me to a question,did you use a tripod or as it appears because of a slower shutter speed you hand held the camera?No matter what you did to get the shot it shows so very well the conditions of the here and now and I thank you for sharing this mellow scene with us all.Rick,through your photos,you have become one heck of an ambassador for Alberta as you show our home province so very well,many thanks again.The always humble Bob.

Hi Rick,

My goodness, it is hovering around 90F here and you travel to see more snow!! I love waterfalls and this one is wonderful. Just beautiful with the trees, the snow, and the water falling into the lake. Thanks for asking about my knee - some improvement but not enough.


Hello Rick
nice lanscape, this place ise really wonderful
I like the details of the waterfall and the great natural luminosity
Very well done

Hy Rick
Thank you very much for your dedication! Sincerely, it is a very nice picture, especially with the little cascade and the running water, a little bit with the effect of a long exposure.
A simple imagine with winter, now, when all are trying to post something in flower or in "move".
Kind regards, Oana

This is beautiful. It is very difficult to get a long exposure image like this in the winter, while keeping everything else exposed. The sky is a little washed out but thats okay because it isnt as important in this image. What you can do to keept the sky exposed in a shot like is to take two photos, one to expose for the sky and trees near the top of the photo, and the other for the water, and then combine the two to create an overall well exposed image. Well captured though,

Hi Rick!

I just wondered what kind of picture you dedicate to "our" Oana, one of the very nice persons on TN and one who cares much about our community.

You know my way to photograph and my passion for winter sceneries, so you probably will not be surprised when I say you that I like this picture very much. I'm delighted by the plain beauty and the serenity of the place. I would feel well there...

Kind regards
