Landscape in a River

Here is a bonus second Feature Photo post on this date, to help fill in the over two months gap following my previous entry.

When our scheduled presenter for the May main meeting of the Whitehorse Photography Club had to cancel on short notice, members were notified to bring their camera equipment for an impromptu photo shoot instead. The Yukon River runs right behind the Whitehorse Public Library, our regular meeting venue, and photographic opportunities abound right there along the river’s edge. The evening light was superb. The low sun warmly lit up the trees and clay cliffs above the opposite bank. These reflected as a wash of colours in the turbulent water, producing this impressionistic image.
