Natural landscapes: Elbow River


Elbow Falls is in Kananaskis Country, an area of the Canadian Rocky Mountains that’s little known outside the province of Alberta.
I visited here for 90 blustery minutes in iffy morning light, often making three or four exposures of each composition to ensure I got something tack sharp.
A tripod, polarizing filter and two darkening filters were used on this scene, made just above the falls. Elbow Falls is a wonderful photography spot because there are at least a half-dozen unobstructed viewpoints, at varying heights, scattered around the area.
