Wells Gray Provincial Park and the North Okanagan
This opening Gallery for 2018 contains a collage of eight images taken over two days at Helmcken Falls in Wells Gray Provincial Park in British Columbia. To compensate for extreme light variance in the compositions, each image was bracketed plus and minus one and two stops. Generally the best three were merged using High Dynamic Range software (PhotomatixPro). The posted images attempt to give viewers different perspectives of the photographic potential of the falls in winter. This is a spectacular location about an hour from Clearwater. Although the snow pack was heavy and we used our 4X4, the road was in good condition, graded and sanded almost all the way. It's a must site in late February and one we highly recommend if the weather cooperates.
