Graveyard Flats Snowbank

Graveyard Flats Snowbank

 

I’ve been doing more work in Black and White lately. Some of it is a return to my roots developing and printing my film, without the chemicals, smells and mess; and some due to lively discussions with friends aimed at working a better image. This has been mistaken as a night image but it was shot around lunch time in late November a few years ago. I wanted the dark moodiness and the reappearance of the sun to relieve us from a sombre time.

Herbert Lake

Herbert Lake

 

Herbert Lake is one of the lesser known lakes in the Canadian Rockies. It’s a small lake that’s nestled in a small valley that’s a bit protected from the winds in the area. Usually, it’s one of my first stops after I enter the Icefields Parkway from the south at Lake Louise.

Hidden Mountain

Not every day in the mountains is all sunshine and roses. There are a lot of days where the weather descends and nothing is visible. In between are days with a partial view. These days are amazing for creating mood.

Thin Ice

Thin Ice

 

Wherever you have moving water in the winter in this area, the temperature fluctuations affect the water flow. The resulting drop in water level creates passages under the snow and ice caps, revealing small alcoves and grottoes. The lowered stream fell below the previously formed ice and created a knife edge.

Vermillion Lakes Autumn

Vermillion Lakes Autumn 2

 

This an older shot that I might have posted before in another incarnation. I’ve reprocessed it using the DeHaze tool in Lightroom and it’s brought out more definition in the clouds. Keeping with my autumn theme of the last two weeks, the grasses have turned color and the aspens to the right of the truck are near the same ones from my September 25th post. My favourite details in this image are the larches in their fall colours high on the slopes of Sundance Peak.
