The Banks of the Yukon River
Whitehorse, Yukon - 2009

What this is...

The banks of the Yukon river just outside of Whitehorse.

My thoughts on this image...

There are places along the Yukon river where the banks rise hundreds of feet above the river and with very little variation, the banks are made up of clay, sand and hard packed mud. It's hard to imagine the forces which created these landforms, or the forces of centuries of water running against it to form these cliffs; but the textures and patterns of the different stratum and the way they have been erroded is beautiful.
