Troll Falls

with 13 comments


On September 11th, the person behind the counter at the visitor center south of Canmore, Alberta, told us it would be worth our while to hike to Troll Falls. We dutifully parked near Kananaskis Village and began walking the one-mile trail. Along the path to the falls we passed the dense tree trunks shown above, which intrigued me with their verticality (the WordPress editor doesn’t think verticality exists, but it does).

Troll Falls turned out to be okay. You might say we were jaded from having already visited Natural Bridge, Takakkaw Falls, and some others. In contrast to my treatment of those waterfalls, which I mostly photographed at high enough shutter speeds to stop the dramatic action, I photographed the smaller and gentler Troll Falls at 1/13 of a second to smooth out the flow of the water.
