Photographer's Note

This is another scan from a trip to Jasper National Park. The river is the Athabasca River, and the mountain is Mount Christie (I think, but I'm not 100% sure). The mountain is typical of what you see in the Canadian Rockies, where glaciers thousands of years ago have eroded back the rock to form these sharp ridges and peaks. One noticable thing about the Rockies is that the land between the mountains is relatively flat, giving good views of the mountains, while in the Coast Mountains near Vancouver the terrain is much rougher, making it difficult to see the peaks from the valleys. This is one reason why the Rockies are a photographer's paradise.

The slide had a blue cast to it, which I did my best to reduce but I couldn't eliminate without some strange consequences.
