Aquila Mountain

Aquila Mountain

 

The rising sun hasn’t broken over the top of the mountain, although the sun is likely up on the other side of the Rockies. Again we’re in the Kicking Horse Valley amongst the low hanging clouds. In this image I went with an old timey feel by using Nik’s Analog Efex.

Mount King

Mount King

 

In the middle of Yoho National Park Mount King lays resplendent in the predawn light. I’m shooting from the Kicking Horse Valley which follows the base of the mountain and runs off to the right towards the town of Field.

Castle Shadows

Castle Shadows

 

A few hours after sunrise and the sun peeks through an opening in the clouds. The light rakes a path across the face of the mountain, which was dusted with a light snowfall from the night before. The foreground trees are still below the snow level this early in the season.

Mt. Ogden In The Mist

Mt. Ogden In The Mist

 

The fall brings bright colors to the foliage and interesting weather. The clouds and fog roll in on Mt Ogden on the right, but I know, up the valley lies Takkakaw Falls and the road usually closes in October, and another summer has passed without a trip up the valley, through the switch backed roads and up the side of the mountain to Canada’s second highest waterfall. More planning for next year.

Hidden Falls

Hidden Falls

 

On one of my hikes in Banff National Park, back in the 1980’s, I came across this little gem of a waterfall. In the days before GPS and EXIF data, the location was lost, but the image remains.
