Bow Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta. Bow Lake is approximately 30 minutes north of Lake Louise, off the Icefields Parkway (Hwy 93) in the Canadian Rockies and a half mile north of the Crowfoot Glacier. Sitting at an elevation of 1,920 m (6,300 ft), it is one of the largest lakes in Banff National Park. Fed by meltwater from the Bow Glacier in the Wapta Icefield, the lake lies at the base of Bow Summit, which is perfectly reflected in its aquamarine waters on a calm day. hashtaglake hashtagphotography hashtaglake hashtagcomposition hashtagmountain hashtagAlberta hashtagbanffnationalpark hashtagkenbennison hashtagBowLake hashtagscenery hashtagBow Glacier

Tumbling Stones

I was attracted to what looked like scattered pieces of rock. There is a break between the peaks. Therefore I set up a composition using the break in the peaks to emphasize the flow of rock pieces on the snow. The location is the Bow Lake area in Banff National Park, Alberta.

Look Up

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.

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.

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.
