Rock,Ice and Storm by George Cousins

We didn’t really want storms when we decided to wander through the great chain of Rocky Mountain parks along the British Columbia/Alberta border (Canada), but the inclement weather proved to be something of a bonus. The drama and mood of the storm clouds, the stark rock peaks of the mountains and the ice sheets in the high valleys and crevasses, all combined to offer new and exciting images of the wilderness.
This scene was taken in Mt. Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia, Sept.4, 2009 with a Fuji S100FS camera, 400mm., polarizing filter,ISO400

    Absolutely sensational George. If ever a picture told a story then it’s this one. Excellent work old buddy. Regards, Peter

  • Hi Peter, sorry I’ve been a bit absent got in the way several times! Coming from you, I more than appreciate your comments. I know we both love the wilder side of nature and that trip provided a lot of them. I actually was happy the weather was so unsettled, even though we had to be patient and wait for the right moments.
