From Hinton back to Jasper

with 21 comments

On the morning of September 5th, reversing the course we’d so recently taken, we set out westward from Hinton, Alberta, back toward Jasper. The previous evening I’d managed to use the day’s last light to eke out a few photographs of trees reflected in one of the ponds along Highway 16. Now, wondering how the ponds would look by morning light, I figured the sun would probably be on the wrong side of things for good pictures. I was partly right, because I did have to push the ISO up to 3200, but other than that the morning light worked well, waking up colors in the water that had already retired for the night when we’d stopped there 13 hours earlier.
