Three Sisters And Clouds

Three Sisters And Clouds

 

The Three Sisters are an iconic landmark in Canmore and have been featured a number of times on this blog. It is always a good feeling seeing the Three Sisters and knowing that I’m not too far from home.

Sunny Days

Cupola Mountain

Sunny days in the mountains are awesome. The crisp clean air is crystal clear and you can see every crack and cranny on the mountain peaks. The area near Rogers Pass is still snow covered, for now. Soon the warmer weather will remove the ice from the trails and melt the avalanche hazards. Until then, I hope you enjoy the view from the road.

The Face Of The Yam

The Face Of Yam

I go past Mount Yamnuska every week. Driving by on the highway, there usually isn’t a good place to stop and shoot. Often the weather is drab or the light is weak, when the light is good, the sky is clear. So, I’m really happy when the light is good and there are some clouds to shoot against, to make a nicer background.

The official name of the mountain is Mount John Laurie, but it’s be long known as Mount Yamnuska, nicknamed “The Yam” by many hikers and climbers.

The View From Harvie Heights

The View From Harvie Heights

When the light gets good, you are either in place to get the shot or you aren’t. If you are not quite in the right place, you have to try and make the shot work. Sometimes that works.

North Rundle Enveloped

North Rundle Enveloped

The view of Mount Rundle in Banff National Park is such an iconic image, it’s hard to find a view that is fresh and new. Here is a view from the north side on the highway. I liked the way that bits of the mountain face appeared through the clouds. I thought the line of evergreens at the bottom of the image would anchor the scene.
