Congratulations to Justin Grimm for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners


Here is a shot from a couple weekends ago, taken at Pyramid Lake just outside of Jasper with my friend Steve Dublanko. Our plans to shoot Athabasca Falls fell through after seeing how high and hazy the water was running, so we made the decision to shoot this easily accessible lake instead. With waders in hand, and plenty of time before sunset, we made out way on the well traveled path to this location. For the most part, this lake is tough to shoot because it lacks dynamic compositions to work with, except this small outlet which we had scouted last summer.

As usual, clouds rolled in last minute and made it seem like the sunset would be a bust. We got lucky and the only clouds in the entire sky that lit up were exactly where we needed them. A successful relaxing photo shoot!.....minus the mother Grizzly and her 2 cubs we had to scare off the only path on the way back to the car. It was both of our first encounters with bears while shooting, and hopefully not a regular occurrence in the future.

Thanks for looking

Hey Justin,

What a super cool shot. Sometimes busted plans lead to stellar shots... I really like how the lines in the fire in the clouds mimic the lines in the water. Some very cool balancing going on here.

Sweet capture! . . . and you needed those clouds. A Grizzly sow with cubs is no trivial matter on the trail - I'm glad you had opportunity to scare her off the path and not vice versa!

Very nice! The white water from the falls making a shape very similar to the reflected peak is a very nice touch to complement the cloud show.

Great shot Justin! If I had to be nitpicky on this great photo, I'd say the water looks a bit crunchy. I'd maybe try and smooth it out. Like I said though, that is being very nitpicky!

Great shot!
I would like to hear more about how you scared a grizzly with two cubs. Lol
When I was there last summer I contemplated going the short walk alone but worried about your scenario and pulled off along the road earlier on.

If they catch your scent they are gone. I've had them catch my scent a half mile out and they leave without hesitation. The danger is when you stumble onto them on the downwind side in close quarters. Doubly bad if its a sow with cubs at close quarters.
