What a spring for flooding! This image goes back a few years when British Columbia was experiencing very high rainfalls. I can’t remember the year just now, but it was probably about a fifteen years ago or so. This normally tiny creek just south of Wells Gray Provincial Park near Vavenby, was roaring after a week of heavy rain. This small creek entered the North Thompson River just behind me as I made this image. I recall the river being extremely high and Laura and I could here huge boulders, being pushed along in the turbulence, slamming into a massive rock in the middle of the river.

I grew up looking at this scene at Verdant Valley, about 10 miles ENE of Drumheller, Alberta. While watching the clouds shadows moving across the grain fields, I noticed the nice overlapping shapes of shaded and sunlit areas. The Wintering Hills are in the background.

I know it’s been a long time since I posted. I apologize for that. My computer is sorrowfully done it’s duty and packed it in. I cannot work on images for the time being, so I have pulled a scan out of the archives. I made this image two years ago near the Tolman Bridge along the Red Deer river.
