Takakkaw Falls - Yoho National Park by 

Takakkaw Falls is a waterfall located in Yoho National Park, near Field, British Columbia, in Canada. Its highest point is 384m (1260 ft) from its base, making it the second-highest officially measured waterfall in western Canada, after Della Falls on Vancouver Island. However its true “free-fall” is only 254m (833 ft). “Takakkaw”, loosely translated from Cree, means something like “it is magnificent”. The falls are fed by the Daly Glacier which is part of the Waputik Icefield. The glacier keeps the volume of the falls up during the warm summer months, and are a tourist attraction, particularly in late spring after the heavy snow melts, when the falls are at peak condition, Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada

    Beautiful scene of the Takakkaw Falls and the sheer magnitude of the volume of water falling! Lovely baby blue shade in the foreground portion of the river and deep green evergreens that frame it along its journey! Beautiful shot! : )

  • Thanks Sandy…as always your critique is much appreciated! Not a big landscape photographer but I like to practise :)

    this is a beautiful angle James. I was there last summer too and couldn’t get a good shot, either too close or too rainy for a walk. This one is great.

  • Thanks Vickie! I kept movng around looking for a good spot as well…I went down along the river and jumped from rock to rock until I found a good position to shoot from. I will try again next summer :)
