Takakkaw Falls, Yoho National Park, British Columbia
Nothing captures the awe and wonder of Yoho National Park like the tremendous thunder of Takakkaw Falls. Plunging from above at a height of 380m (1246 ft ) with a 254m ( 833 ft ) freefall, Canada's second highest waterfall leaves every visitor humbled. Fed by the Daly Glacier above, Takakkaw Falls' flow is at its peak in July when glacial meltwater is running freely. The Yoho Valley access road, located just east of Field, is closed during the winter season due to high-frequency avalanches, opening June through October for the summer season. I took this shot last week at 1:12 pm with my Canon 1DX, EF24-105 f/4L IS, 1/200s, f/11, ISO 160, 24 mm. As you can see, I'm pretty close to the falls, and left the people in this shot for scale. There was so much Creamy colored water going over the falls, 1/200th was sufficient to silken it.
