Summer afternoon sunshine is rarely a good time to make photographs, but it certainly worked well for this scene, high above Moraine Lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
It was my wife who saw these cascades, coming off a glacier and catching the light. I merely set up the tripod, put on the 70-300 mm. zoom lens, attached a polarizing filter (to cut the glare - very necessary over this long distance) and made pictures.
