Rundle Clouds

Rundle Clouds

 

Some days Mount Rundle is spectacular some day it isn’t so much.  Don’t get me wrong, It’s always great to photograph in Banff National Park, but you have to be in place at the right time to get the amazing color. The thing is with landscape photography, returning to the same location multiple times will increase your chance of  getting great images. I usually try to get to Vermillion Lakes at least a couple times a year. So, keep trying and go shoot something!

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.

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.

A Walk In The Woods

Walk In The Woods

 

Back when I did more regular work, I took more time off to go hiking and such. Most of the time I took my camera with me, usually loaded with Kodachrome. I don’t exactly remember where this was taken, but most likely was somewhere in Banff National Park. There are a great number of trails that are great for day hikes in the park.

Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls

If you are a scientific sort of person, you could calculate that, at a 44° angle from the sun the light refraction will create a rainbow on rain or water spray. I mostly just wander around and take pictures. I’m thinking that this might be Johnson’s Canyon in Banff National Park, but I could be wrong. Shooting film there is now EXIF or GPS information that is embedded, until you digitize the file.
