Recently, the Yellowhead 4-H Photography Club went on an outing to Wells Gray Park in Clearwater, B.C. We went to different waterfalls and one look-out area.

The first stop was Moul Falls, the hike in is 6 km. It has two viewing points, one is at the top of the waterfall and the other one is at the base of the waterfall. Moul Falls is the third highest waterfall in Wells Gray and the only waterfall you can go behind. When we were looking at the waterfall from the top viewing point you could see a rainbow, it was beautiful.

Our next stop was Green Mountain Lookout where we ate lunch. The lookout had a great view of Trophy Mountain. In the lookout tower there was lots of information about the history of the area, volcanoes, surrounding plant life, and Trophy Mountain.

Our last stop was Dawson Falls, also known as Little Niagara. Dawson Falls cascades 90 meters over a layer of lava. This waterfall also had two viewing points that gave a great variety of photography styles. One right on the very top of the falls, giving a great depth-of-field and leading lines pictures. The other lookout spot is a wide view covering the entire waterfall, where landscape and action photos can be captured.

Overall this photography outing was a great experience and gave a great chance to apply photo techniques and skills we have learned over this 4-H year.
