It really looks like the dawn of time. There is simply no sign of human existence when you look over the cliff and see the Athabasca River flowing between miles of primeval forest, backed up by ridges of the Rocky Mountains. The peaks clearly show the ridges and layers of rock as they were thrust up from the bed of the shallow sea which once covered this whole area.

    Fantastic George. What a location.

  • Thanks Jim..it’s quite a view when you stand there..you can" feel" the silence, if you get what I mean. Even the sound of the river fades away. So many places like that in the mountain parks.

    Very dramatic, from the sky to the ice – nice!

  • Hello Regina, thanks very much for stopping by, and glad you liked this shot. For many years I also lugged around a manual 35mm. SLR, a German Exakta Varex, and I still have it. They were all great old cameras, heavy but so reliable :)
