Rossland photographer Ross Scott has been carrying a camera with him since he was living in downtown Toronto during the ‘60s as a Ryerson student. Now he finds inspiration in the mountains of the Kootenays.

“Nature is like my church,” said Scott.

A collection of Scott’s nature photography will be on display at Kokanee Camera with an opening reception on February 3 from 6 to 8 p.m.

“This show is going to be on the theme of water, and water tearing down mountains sort of thing,” he said. “You know how powerful water is as a theme here in the Kootenays. All the pictures have been taking from Kootenay National Park through to the Columbia River flowing south of Trail.”
