The Purcell Mountain Range within the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

A photo taken at high noon, the light was a bit harsh but the view was so spectacular I couldn't resist taking a photo. The sun was at my back so help soften the light.

Hi Janice
I like the POV of this composition by looking at the mountain peak via the gorge and flanked by the hills on either side while the trees in the foreground gives it depth and perspective.
The lighting, details, and colours are great. TFS.

Hi Janice, this is how I think of the Rockies, but with more snow! I like how you show us the pine trees up close, and then seeing them dimishing as they reach up to the peak. Good shot, well captured,

Hi Janice,
Lovely landscape with this classic v-form valley!
It is like the landscape is framing the majestic mountains in the distance, all topped by a very nice blue sky...

Hi janice,
What an excellent POV, with the little brance making you look further into the photo. The colors in the entire photo look perfect. I just keep going back to the summit in this photo. The gorge keeps leading me there. Very well done.

Great beautiful mountains colours and great perspective!
Nice light and details!
Thanks Ana:)
