Awhile ago I posted a shot of this storm coming in over the Rocky mountains in Kootenay National Park, in south-eastern British Columbia, Canada.The park is about 550 square miles and was formed in 1920 as part of an agreement to construct the Banff-Windermere highway. We encountered all sorts of “mountain weather” on this trip, with very sudden and sometimes violent storms coming up out of nowhere, but providing some great photo-ops. I had to stop and shoot this out the side window. It was raining so hard, if you look very closely at the pavement you can see the rain dancing off the roadbed.
BTW, this may look like a monochrome shot, but it isn’t, and it shows how a storm like this does a good job of wiping out most colours.
