Photographer's Note

A week after taking shots of the international ice climbing competitions along the Jacques Cartier River, today I returned with friends on snowshoes to another section of the river and discovered some incredible ice formations that nobody had seen the week before.
This particular section bends around a peninsula and the only way of presenting it was in a large panoramic format.The many terraced levels represent the leftover ice floes from sudden flush in December and the gradual subsiding of the water level which left these flat chunks.The aqua blue green ice is from natural runoff from the forest into this deep gorge where salmon fight their way up the river each year.
This is a stitching of six images . With all the brightness from the whiteness,the darker parts are a bit to dark...but I was only concentrating on the ice:-)
