Climbing to Jasper

Uploaded: September 08, 2012 12:19:51


Well we are on our climb up the Rockies to our next destination Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in the Jasper National Park. In this composition I tried to get the contrasts of the close detail of the mountain on the right and the distant mountains on the left. I used the river to secure the base and the line of trees to keep you in the frame. Comments and critique are welcome.

Great composition considering it was captured from a moving train Emile! The anticipation at this stage of your journey must have been incredible!
Good luck with your antique Minolta, it is difficult to find anyone to process film in Australia these days! #10314445

I do believe you accomplished all you set out to do photographically, Emile. Wonderful dof from near to far, excellent color, leading lines, clarity and beautifully composed, to boot. The scenery as well as, your photo skills lend itself perfectly to the feel of "crisp and clean"! #10315165
