Flame Over Fog

Flame Over Fog

 

There are parts of Vermillion Lakes that are open in the winter, due to a warm spring feeding the lake water. When the thermometer drops, the mist rises off of the water. The clouds are lit by the setting sun and have turned a brilliant red/orange. It doesn’t matter when I visit Banff National Park, I always find something great to photograph.

Frozen Moon

Frozen Moon

 

The moon looks down on us, and sometimes it looks back up. The moon is reflected in the ice at Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park. After the sun dips below the mountain tops, everything takes on a blue cast.

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.

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.
