Bromley Rock Provincial Park High Water

In May I was on my way back from Kelowna and passed by Bromley Rock Provincial Park. Was raining a bit, but wasn’t so much that I couldn’t get out and try my new ND filter for a long exposure (15s) shot of the Similkameen River.

Similkameen Valley from Goat Mountain Viewing Area

Drove through the Similkameen Valley on Hwy 3B on the way to Keremeos. While Keremeos claims to be the “fruit stand capitol of Canada”, I failed to notice any once there.

Upon seeing this sign it became painfully obvious to me that on future trips such as this, I should bring binoculars. I think I saw a white dot on the mountain, but who knows what it actually was.

Bromley Rock Provincial Park in Spring

Bromley Rock Provincial Park at fairly high water. Glad I did not try to photograph it in the summer when the water is low and it is crawling with people in brightly coloured float tubes and boats. The river here is the Similkameen River.
