My wife and I went for a hike last October 11th, 2009 to Troll Falls in the Kananaskis back country. The trail actually ends right here with high rock walls all around. I was hoping for flowing water but I guess that will just have to wait till spring.

i really like the way you emphasized the texture in the rocks surrounding the falls, as well as leaving the ice just a little bit tinted, which emphasizes the cold ice. this will be a nice place to visit in the spring as well. could make a nice montage of seasonal change.

Thanks Hards80. I believe the mound under the falls is as a result of 4 to 6 feet of ice build up. If you look to bottom right corner you see where the floor level is.

it had that much ice built up in october?? wow. so how many months of flowing water do you have?

October was extremely cold for a while. I was surprised to see it in this state all ready. Must be global warming. One river such as the Bow River that flows from the mountains outward is usually flowing all year even when it's -30 and colder. That creates a ton of fog.

Great picture spy, I really like the tint of blue in the ice. What really facinates me is that it looks like the river froze and then started to flow before giving up and froze completely.
