Athabasca Falls is in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada, and is one of the highlights of the Park. But like so many places, I find that so many photos show the same basic scene and neglect a lot of views that take a bit more time to find and compose. I found that the deep gorge walls trapped the mists from the torrent of water and gave a more dreamy and fantasy-like aspect to the scene.
The Athabaska River is one of the main rivers that wind through the Rocky Mountains and the Park. The Park is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
