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.

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.

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.

In the tradition of The Best Camera Is The One You Have With You, and to debunk the myths that you can’t take great pictures with a point and shoot, or that city shots have to be of buildings and people on the street, here’s my city shot this week. I shot this with my aging Nikon Coolpix P6000 (which turns 6 years old next month) from the NW parking structure at Rockyview General Hospital in Calgary. I aligned the sun with the tree to cut down on the brightness from the sun, so that the dark areas on the far shore might have some detail.

Three Valley Gap Autumn

Right beside the Trans-Canada Highway between Revelstoke and Sicamous, BC, there is this picturesque hotel that is wedged into a deep mountain valley. The part of the hotel in the sunlight stands out brightly with it’s red roof next to the golden and amber deciduous trees. You can see where a small cloud is casting a shadow against the mountain side on the left.
