Looking down into the gorge of the Athabasca River, a short way below the falls. The various layers and the composition of the rock walls results in many shades of color, made even more interesting by the effects of sunlight filtering through the changing mists of the river. This is one of those prone positions where one very cautiously peeks over the edge to get the shot. Later on, one wonders where our common sense goes at such times.

    Wonderful shot, George! What a beautiful capture of the falls. I think I’d be sitting about six feet back with my camera tied to the end of a stick! :o)

  • Hi Mike! Glad you liked it. I thought about it for awhile and then decided the creep-and-crawl method would probably work OK. lol!

    I might try that, but the problem would be getting back up again! Probably drop the camera……
