Dreamy dawn shot looking across to Takakkaw Falls. We had to start along the iceline track in the dark with head torches to get high enough for sunrise to get this shot. You can see the toe of the Daly Glacier which feeds the falls blending into the sky. The glacier is part of the massive Waputik Icefield in Yoho National Park. To put some scale on this Takakkaw Falls plunge 380 metres (1,250 ft) with a large single drop in the middle being 254 metres (833 ft). Takakkaw is said to mean "it is magnificent" in the Cree language. Yoho National Park. British Columbia, Canada . It was a relatively long exposure at 1.6 seconds, f9 and 400 ISO which gives you an idea of how dark is still was with the clouds blocking the sunrise.

I’ve never seen the falls from this angle, wow, awesome capture!

That's because its quite a hike up there; you should do the iceline trail for sure. It's one of the best.

If that's what it means they're not wrong.

I showed my youngest how big it was with the trees in the foreground for some context and he had no words.

It is a big scene.
