Reflections (7)





This photo was taken in EC Manning Park which is between Hope and Princeton on Highway 3 in the southern region of British Columbia. This park is in the middle of the Cascade Mountains and a three hour drive from Vancouver or the Okanagan. The park is 70,844 hectares of rugged forested mountains, deep valleys, alpine meadows, lakes and rivers. There is ample opportunity for hiking on trails of 15-minute duration up to six days.

I love this picture. The scenery in what we call the North Cascades is spectacular! I grew up under the shadow of Mt. Rainier and the more southerly Cascades, and sometimes I really miss the scenery.

Viola said...

Such a gorgeous nature and photo! And the reflection! It's a long time since I've been here on your blog, I'll sure be back! :)

This is just gorgeous.

Teresa, the area is serene and honey for the soul.

Viola, reflections entrance me.

Leah, think of how the fish would bite with a line flicked in.

Trish and Rob, another magical place in BC.

One can feel the stillness of the area, and thatch patch of fog made it perfect.

Beautiful, just beautiful.

RuneE, those times when the water is so still with a perfect reflection often occur when I don't have a camera at hand.

Richard, when I saw this photo I could almost smell the evergreens in cool, crisp mountain air.

Pam, with honey being a perfect food it fit with the mood of this photo.

Breathtaking - such wonderful scenary. Must get to Canada one day soon.

Barbara Martin said...

David, fog over water certainly gives a mysterious feel.

Barrie, it's just up the coast from your location.

Mike, the best part of Canada is the west, though I'm biased. The landscapes across the whole of the country is varied from forest to farmland to deserts to lakes and mountains, and further north muskeg, stunted trees and polar ice.
