Sunwapta Falls
Lens: DA-15 Camera: k3-ii Photo Location: Alberta, Canada ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/8s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Glen, 07-17-2018, 12:32 PM

Sunwapta Falls in Jasper National Park, Alberrta, Canada. I actually wasn't using a neutral density filter to slow down the shutter for the smooth water effect. However we got to the falls after a long hike in another part of Jasper. It was later than expected. Not late enough for the golden hour or sunset but late enough combined with the cloudy skies to have caused the smooth effect.

Beautiful image, I'd love to go there myself. Exiting and thought provocative with that small island in the middle of the river.
Is it accessible or quite an hike? I see a fence to the left which makes me believe you can get there by car, or am I wrong?

Beautiful shot with balanced composition, mountains, trees, water, and rocks - a great place to be. The water really shows its flow. Love the island dead in the middle of the stream. Well done. Thanks.

It is right next to the parking area. There are walkways and bridges all around the falls. However to get this image a person must go around the fence to a safe but not condoned area.

Very nice scene, and well done with the longer exposure.

Excellent photo. I like that the exposure wasn't so long that it smoothed the water excessively.
