Golden Ears Provincial Park

in #adventure9 months ago

This is a shot of the lower falls along Gold Creek in Golden Ears Provincial Park in Southern BC. I was shocked at how busy this place was when we were there until we asked some people who told us there was a Vancouver 'Socality' instameet happening. I then watched in horror as someone lost control of a two week old drone in the updraft coming off the waterfall which hit an overhanging tree branch and promptly plunged into the falls never to be seen again. We headed out off track into the forest to find some peace from the crowds for a while then came back to take this shot under heavy spray from the waterfall just before dusk with the falls to ourselves. Thinking we were smart for outlasting the crowds we then almost got trapped in the park as unbeknownst to us they lock the gates at 5:30pm sharp at that time of year. Luckily there was still a ranger there who let us though so I did not miss my flight I had b booked later that night !

The shot was taken on a Canon EOS 6D Mark II and Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM at ISO 100, 20.0 mm, f/16 and 1s exposure time.
