Rundle Sunrise

Rundle Sunrise

 

There’s something about standing in the chill dark next to Vermillion Lakes, waiting for the sun to rise. This day had  remarkably still water, for great reflections, and the lack of wind really allowed peaceful contemplation.

Road To Castle

Road To Castle

 

Ominous clouds hang over Castle Mountain in Banff National Park. A small opening in the clouds allows sunlight to wash over a patch of forest at the base of the mountain. Highway 1A, The Bow Valley Parkway undulates through the foreground.

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.
