The incredible details of the Rocky Mountains

On a clear day I decided to take a close up shot of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. While parked on the side of the road, I took out my 70-200mm lens and pointed it straight at the summit of the mountain in front of me. The sheer detail you’re able to see is incredible. It humbles you to think you are just a tiny spec compared to the size of this behemoth.

The patterns you see of the rocks on the side of the mountains are all naturally formed. You can just imagine at how rugged these mountainsides are just by looking at these photos.

The trees in the photo above look so small, yet when you stand in front of them, they are massively tall. That’s the power of Mother Nature, and that’s what truly is mesmerizing about the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

If you ever get a chance, go see the Rocky Mountains. And if you ever go there, make sure to hike it to truly experience the wonders of this planet.
