November in the East KootenayPosted: December 4, 2011
It really doesn’t matter where in Canada you live, the month of November is one that delivers regular reminders that winter is coming; or in some cases, it’s arrived.
In the East Kootenay, November means radical changes in weather, from lovely late autumn days to frigid infringements of the northern dominance to come. It means it is time to get your snow tires on and begin expecting anything on our highways. A 100 km journey can feature dry roads and sunshine to rain, to black ice to snow and ice that creates extreme driving conditions.
Oftentimes November is a socked in, grey/silver/gun barrel blue with tans, white and mellow greens; it is when the big game return from the high country, adding new elements of danger on our highways and reminding us all once again that we live in a land of milk and honey.
November is when we begin to suck it up. Volunteer organizations are usually in full-swing, kids’ sports are rolling along and the school year is one-fifth over. Freshmen are finding their feet and another year begins to fold over toward the new.
The days grow shorter… and shorter still, each one warmed by less sun as autumn pours into December.
The festive season’s approach begins to demand more of our attention, and for football fans, there is the Grey Cup – one of Canada’s truly great traditions, and parties.
Photographically speaking, November can be a challenge for landscape photographers. Schedules must be altered in order to seize the best light, which more-often-than-not is swallowed by clouds fattened by sassy Pacific storms – so shadows and forms and moods must be embraced.
The images shown were taken at/near: Canal Flats, Cranbrook, Fernie, Hosmer, Invermere, Radium Hot Springs and Skookumchuk during the month of November, 2011.
