Photographer's Note

The Wedge Pond is a rather obscure stop on the side of Highway 40 in Kananaskis country, where the occasional fisherman will stop to catch a trout without needing to step into the water. This little pond can be quite glamorous in the fall though, when the aspens turn color and the surrounding peaks rising up to 3000 m have been covered with the first snow of the season. A still moment is rare in these valleys, which channel the wind blasting down the east slopes the Rocky Mountains.
I had to wait for almost an hour for two groups of tourists to bugger off, but it was worth it. The prominent mountain in the background is The Fortress.
