October Snow
Elkford, BC - 2009

What this is...

An early snowfall in the Rockies.

My thoughts on this image...

Weather is a never-ending factor in the Rocky Mountains. A bright and sunny day can change to gale-force winds, hale and snow in seconds... and then revert to that bright day in the same period of time.

Although the temperatures had been unseasonably warm during this particular trip, we awoke one morning to snow and high clouds that obscured the mountain tops. I loved the way the pines on the slopes had just received a dusting of snow while the slopes themselves were covered with just enough snow to reveal and highlight the rocks texture. For me this shot encompasses why I love the endless textures and patterns formed between light, rock, cloud and weather that combine in a magical way in British Columbia.
