Look Up

Banff_3904a

I had just finished a couple hours photographing along the Minniwanka Lake shorelines. I was walking back to the car lot. I looked up to a magnificent view of a mountain peak.

The various layers of this mountain are well define. To compose this composition I used the roadside trees to guide your eyes to the main subject, the mountain peak.

Bow Lake Area

This composition was a creation from the South end of Bow Lake. You can see what I believe is a glacier. My brother will correct me on that. But what ever it is it sure stands out.

PEYTO LAKE BANFF NATIONAL PARK

My brother Bob parked the car in the crowded parking lot at the entrance to Payto Lake.

Gathering our gear, we were soon on our way. The first thing I noticed was the large crowd of Chinese tourists. Where ever we went they were there. We picked up the Peyto Lake trail. There was snow in the bush here. Hmmm, interesting. We made our way along the trail, passing out coming tourist along the way. We finally arrived at the viewing platform. The photo above was one of my many creations here.

Bow Summit, Banff National Park

My brother and I were travelling along Hwy 93 North in Banff National Park, Alberta. Ahead of us was Bow Summit. We pulled over,off the road. I set up my tripod and camera. So I had the snow covered mountains , open scrub land and highway 93. Thus the composition I created is what you see above. The two cars give you the perspective of the mountain height.

Mountain Series


  • To stand before these mountains
    The giants of the world
    Is a humbling experience

The Rocky Mountains took shape during an intense period of plate tectonic activity that resulted in much of the rugged landscape of western Canada A close look at the structure of the mountain will show you the layers of sedimentary rock that created this mountain. The Canadian Rockies are composed of layered sedimentary rock such as limestone and shale.

Mountains of Lake Minniwanka

It was a cloudy morning on the shores of Lake Minniwanka Banff National Park. The lake water was not calm. I looked across to the far shore. The above composition caught my eye. I love the variation of the line patterns that can be seen. The dark shadows in the foreground to the ruggedness of the landscape create a unique composition.
