Takakkaw Falls

There are moments when I wish an excavator was a standard photographer's equipment, just like a tripod is. You go out to a location, realize that what nature has created is wonderful but not perfect, so you start the engine and do a little landscaping yourself. Only when you're done you set up your tripod and take the shot.

Takakkaw Falls is one of those places where I wish Canadian Rockies were less civilized than they are. Getting there after half a day of hiking through rugged terrain would make you fully appreciate this waterfall's beauty. But instead you just drive there, park you car, take a look, maybe a snapshot, and you're on your way.

Does anyone else notice how the mineral rich glacial meltwater's color resembles that of dirty bathwater? (2012-06-22 Takakkaw Falls, Canada)
