[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On our hiking trip from Lake Minnewanka up to Stewart Canyon, we ended up here, at the Cascade river.
The Cascade River cut this gorge over many thousands of years. When Lake Minnewanka was dammed, this canyon was largely filled in by the backed up water.
We just sat down, relaxed and enjoyed the view.
It took a long time before we made the walk back, because it was so very peaceful and quiet. All we could here was the sound of the water and some birds singing. But at some point we had to go back, because it was our last day here in Canada, unfortunately. But hey, holidays do end.......

Hi Nel,

I'm ready for that continuous holiday...;-) Just roaming around the world mountain biking, hiking, maybe a little kayaking, and photography...;-) Just need to figure out how to finance it...;-) Oh well, I reckon I'll be content with what I have and at least TN lets us richly enjoy the sites others share.

River, forest, mountains, and sky! Very nice components for a beautiful landscape!

Thanks & TFS,

Hola Nel, agradable vista y maravilloso habitat, buenos colores y pov, saludos

Maravillosa vista. Lugar bastante hermoso lleno de contrastes. El rio, los árboles, el cielo... un paisaje realmente hermoso que tu has sabido captar para nuestro relax (virtual).
Saludos, JL.

Hello Nel,
This is a typical scenery well framed!
The river, the forest, the mountain... it is all there, nicely captured in this fine image...
I like the point of view, looking against the water flow in the stream!

Hoi Nel,
Een prachtig punt in de rivier. Echt een plek om te ontspannen en naar een tijdje te moeten plassen van al het stromende water. :)
Een zeer goede foto met een mooie verdeling van rivier, bomen, berg en lucht.

Hello Nelly,
I completely agree with you as this view and this place is very relaxing. It reminds me a lot of the Mont-Tremblant National Park where I use to spend my summer vacation. I like those wild places with water everywhere :-) Nice POV, composition and details. This is a very nice shot. Thanks,

Hello Nel

Hi Nel.
Very nice landscape.I like that contrast in scene:down dynamic wild river and above her peaceful and monumental mountains.Between them forms dike beautiful slim and high trees.Nice details and well saturated colours.I like these composition.Very nice work.
