Invermere Sunset II
Sunset at Invermere: ISO 200, 11mm, f/5.6, 1/500

I took this at a roadside rest area between Radium and Invermere, British Columbia last summer. This is the area where you can usually spot the bighorn sheep eating along the roadside.

I was lucky to catch the break in the heavy cloud cover with the setting sun trying to breakthrough.

I took a lot of photos that evening and also took the time to soak in all the scenery.

A Walk in the Woods (Revelstoke National Park): ISO 800, 15mm, f/5.0, 1/50

This is a picture from last fall. Taken the same day as the Stellar Jay in Revelstoke National Park posted earlier.

It was a great easy hike through the thick forest by way of a boardwalk. If not for the boardwalk you would almost think you were walking in a magical place with no civilization around.

This beautiful jay was hoping we would feed it. We are happy to report that we obeyed park rules and did not feed the animals.

This was taken at the Big Cedar Boardwalk Trail at Mount Revelstoke National Park in British Columbia, Canada.
