Description The Columbia Icefield is located on the boundary of Banff and Jasper National Parks. One of the largest accumulations of ice and snow south of the Arctic Circle, it covers an area of nearly 325 square kilometres. The continuous accumulation of snow feeds eight major glaciers including the Athabasca, Dome, and Stutfield Glaciers, all visible from the Icefields Parkway. The Columbia Icefield is a true 'hydrological apex,' for its meltwater feeds streams and rivers that pour into the Arctic, Atlantic, and Pacific oceans.
Amanda White, UK Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Amanda White C.P.A.G.B.
Welcome. I am a full time Graphic Designer and a part-time photographer. My love of photography has always existed but has only really developed seriously since 2005, I was published 4 times nationally during that year in Digital Camera Magazine and came 3rd in their ‘Photographer of the Year’ Competition in the Altered Images category.
Inspired by my initial success I proceeded to upgrade my camera to a modest DSLR and haven’t looked back since. In 2008 I attained the first merit award of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, which earned me the initials after my name. the subjects I shoot are eclectic, and my post processing techniques vary wildly as I love to experiment and don’t like to be pigeon-holed.
