The Bottom of the Falls

Pictured below is the end of Shannon Falls in Squamish, BC.  It’s sort of a nice tourist attraction to stop by while on the way to Whistler as Squamish is about half way between Vancouver and Whistler.  It’s a good chance to stretch your legs and enjoy what nature has to offer.

We drove up so that my cousin could fully explore the village of Whistler as we didn’t really have time to explore it the last time we were there due to time constraints of our tour bus.  It was sort of good timing to come see the falls because the spring melt is in its full swing and there is increased flow at the falls itself.

Naturally, I wanted to take a photograph where the water would look silky smooth while maintaining sharpness of everything else around such as the rocks and the trees.  Armed with my cousin’s camera and her professional grade lens, I braced myself at a nearby rock and took a photograph at a shutter speed that I wouldn’t dare try without a tripod.  What came out suffered from very little motion blur that could be rectified by sizing down the image which was much too big anyway.  I hope you enjoy.
