Bridal Veil Falls - British Columbia

Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park is a scenic day-use area in the Fraser Valley where visitors can enjoy picnicking, hiking, and viewing the spectacular Bridal Veil Falls, the sixth-highest waterfall in Canada, which tumbles almost 400 feet (122 metres) over a smooth rock face, creating a "veil-like" effect.

Located at the base of Chilliwack's famed Mount Cheam, popular Bridal Veil Falls is prone to freezing during colder winters, which results in the formation of an unstable wall of ice. Bridal Creek flows through the park, under the freeway and into Cheam Lake Regional Nature Park, eventually emptying into the mighty Fraser River.

The significant wildlife species in the park are primarily songbirds and small mammals. Songbird species include the varied thrush, black-throated gray warbler, and red-breasted nuthatch. Transient species include porcupine, Columbia blacktail deer, and black bear.

This beautiful waterfall is just a half an hour drive from my home. Sometimes I go there just to relax. It's a wonderful place to forget the stressful world around us. :o)

Hi Ileana.
The falls are beautifully framed with the trees and landscape. Great composition. Beautiful sharpness, colour and detail. Did you try a slower shutter-speed for more blur and softness to the water. Slightly over-exposed on the thicker water above, a couple hot-spots with no detail, but thats being picky.
Wonderful image

parfaite réussite, bonnes couleurs nettes
félicitations et merci du partage
