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.
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.
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.
I discovered this little bay off of Lake Minniwanka. There was a point of land with some color. The lake water was quieting down a bit, so their was some reflection available.The towering mountains in the background
#LakeMinniwanka Lake. In the background is #MountGirouard. All of this is located in #BanffNationalPark in the #RockyMountains. We spent the night at the #TheElkandAvenueHotel. Highly recommended.
My brother Bob and I spent the night in the town of Banff. We booked into the The Elk and Avenue Hotel.The next morning we drove up to the scenic Lake Minniwanka. It was a cloudy dark day. I made the most of the conditions. I was able to get many shots working with the the patterns of nature
