Photographer's Note

I took this picture yesterday afternoon just outside Yale, BC in the Fraser Canyon. As some may know, this is peak high water and flood season in this area and at Hells Gate, the Fraser is only about 4 meters below the flood levels of 1948. It is difficult to capture the indescribable turbulence, force and power of this river on camera, but I think this image gives you a sense at least. Hells Gate, about 20 minutes upstream from where this image was taken, is the deepest and narrowest point on the Fraser River; being only 33 meters wide. At high water level (now), over 200 million gallons of water per minute flow through the gorge - twice the volume of Niagara Falls, traveling at up to speeds of 32 km/hr. We also visited there yesterday (see it in my workshop)
