[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Cottonwood slough with Pyramid mountain in the back ground.

The Rockies were formed from 80 to 55 million years ago by the Laramide orogeny (the sliding of two plates under the North American plate). Since then, erosion by water and glaciers have sculpted the mountain range into dramatic valleys and peaks. At the end of the last ice age, humans started to inhabit the mountain range. After Europeans, such as Sir Alexander MacKenzie and the Lewis and Clark expedition, started to explore the range, minerals and furs drove the initial economic exploitation of the mountains, although the range never became densely populated.

Hello Denis!
Nice landscape. Nice refelction, superb mirror effect.
Excellent colours. Good brightness and saturation. Perfect composition.
Very interesting note.
Well done!

Hi Denis
Nice image here. Unusual to use square format, nice move but it doesn't work for everybody or every image. Brings out the color and the left side of the image is striking and well balanced, but I think the crop is a bit tight at the top. I don't know what manipulation program you use, I would clean up the bottom right and left of the image.The debris in the water and the foliage is a distraction to the impact and purity of the reflection.

In all a very striking image with wonderful color. Isn't nature magic!


Ciao Denis, lovely and peaceful mountain landscape, fantastic reflections, splendid light and wonderful autumnal colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Denis,
I like it a great deal when I see images of places I have been and seeing how others take their images. This is a beautiful spot I have been at many times. Here you have captured the wonderful colours superbly. Thanks Denis.

Hi Denis

the autumn colours in this beautiful slough Image, together with the reflection make it an absolute pleasure to view your photo.



Hi Denis
Wow, the colors are amazing here. Autumn is such a great time for photography and Jasper is a gorgeous location. I like the composition and the different layers with all the textures. Love it.

Nice plethora of colours. Good composition too. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Denis,
Very beautiful image with good composition. The colours and reflection off the water make it special. I agree with the comments about the cropping a little tight at the top and removing the objects from the water. On the other hand, although post processing has always been part of the art of photography, the less required the better. Well done.

Hellow Denis,
What an excellent mirror image of the mountain,very good depth and numerous points of interest.Interesting tones from foreground to BG.
