This Photo of the Day, titled “Fraser River Peace,” comes from Gadling Flickr pool member James Wheeler and was captured using a Nikon D600.

In the caption for this image, Mark tells us, “This is where Kanaka creek joins the Fraser River. Apparently it is peaceful.”

Kanaka Creek also runs through a regional park of the same name in the District of Maple Ridge, British Columbia. The Riverfront area of the park shown in this photo has picnic tables and a boat-launch for canoes and kayaks and a number of three-story wooden viewing towers.

Photo Of The Day: Mount Revelstoke National Park View

photo of the day

This Photo of the Day, titled “Mount Revelstoke National Park View,” comes from one of my favorite Gadling Flickr pool members James Wheeler. I like James’ work for more than its visual appeal too. Rather than simply posting a photo (like I do), James adds detail about the gear he used and more. For example, James captions the image:

“Mount Revelstoke national park is one of the few places you can drive all the way to an alpine summit. Lets you get the great view of a hike up a mountain without the work. The is the view from the top, pretty impressive.”

Known “as a place of contrasts,” Canada’s Mount Revelstoke National Park hosts a variety of geographical zones ranging from dense, old-growth rainforest to alpine meadows and tundra, as depicted in this photo.

James captured the image using a Tokina 12-24mm f/4 lens with a Nikon Polarizing Filter mounted on his Nikon D5000 atop a steady Sirui T-2005X Tripod with K-10x Tripod Head. Processing the image, James used Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, Nik Color Efex Pro and Topaz Adjust.

Sound complicated? I thought so too. Check Gadling’s library of timeless Photo Tips by creative photographer Dana Murph who breaks down what all those things are and more.
