Default Lower Falls, Johnson Canyon, Alberta

I've planned to go to Johnson Canyon but didn't want to go when everything was frozen so I waited till it warmed up some. Having never been here in winter, I was hoping the 2 hour drive wouldn't disappoint....and it didn't.

It was very dark by the time I hiked the 1.1 km from the car to get here. This shot consists of 10, 30 second shutter landscape mode shots stitched with cs4. Then created a slight hdr with the final image.

The falls are roughly 40 feet in height.

Yes, falling in would not be something you'd want to do. There is a guard rail there so no worries.

Awesome..just awesome...

Can you explain to a green horn the process you did???

Is that 10 shots of the same scene stitched? Or 10 overlapping shots stitched??

Why is the water not frozen over? And is that white glare in the water the reflection of the sun?

spy,

Great digital art. Great "body" to the flat surface. And yes, the first picture offers a place to stand

As mostly with your pictures lately I wonder how much is authentic and how much is refined, artistic postprocessing. Did you use a fish eye?
