Helmcken Falls Through Mist and Time
I have been working at archiving some of my older images, this photograph was made in 1994 at Helmcken Falls in Wells Gray Provincial Park, north of Kamloops, B.C. The falls, which have been around for a long, long time are part of the Murtle River and are the fourth highest waterfalls in Canada at 141 metres ( 463 ft ). The falls were named after John Helmcken a physician with the Hudson's Bay Company. This image was made with my Tachihara 4 x 5 view camera and a 120mm lens on a rainy wet day as the clouds lifted.
