The Sunwapta Falls make a good quick stop on the Icefield Parkway on the way from Jasper National Park’s central townsite area to the Icefield Centre or on the way to Banff National Park.
A stop at Sunwapta Falls offers the traveler a view of a rushing waterfall in a scenic setting. A short path along the edge has plenty of viewpoints.
I’ve been having fun lately editing photos from my last trip to Jasper National Park. One thing I’m experimenting with is converting color photos to black and white. Then, adjusting the photos to try to capture the essence of the scene.
In this first photo, the fallen tree outline on the bottom gives a sense of the scale of the falls. Enlarge the photo and you can almost hear the falls.
This second photo shows the river draining into the very start of the Sunwapta Falls.
Try converting your travel photos to black and white. It can be addicting.
