Roche Ronde

This photograph was made at a roadside turn out beside the Athabasca River just inside the east boundaries of Jasper National Park on Highway #16. It’s location that I stop and look at almost every time we drive into Jasper. The clouds were magical on this particular day and because I’d driven this route so many time previously I knew there was a strong possibility of finding a good photograph when I did stop. As I recall it was quite windy and when I did get my camera set up for the shot I had to wait while the wind blew the clouds into a spot where there was good light on the mountain and interesting clouds too. Waiting for something like that to come together is always nerve wracking as one never knows whether mother nature is going to cooperate or not. Fortunately on this day she smiled on me.
