A Gravel Wash is my favourite type of location in the mountains. Created by mountain streams and rivers with heavy flows of water during the snowmelt in the spring of the year, these sites transform into large gravel or silt flats during the summer and fall, and are excellent places to simply get out of your vehicle and take a long relaxing stroll

Location – West of Hinton in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

    I am really enjoying the beautiful colors in your work Ray, this is no exception. We need a complete location for Canadiana, please, so all can enjoy.

  • Sorry Vickie, I must be getting famous for this by now !! I can only credit my Polarizer filter for the colours Vickie ….it seldom comes off my lens.
