Clouds and Mountains

 

RockyMountains_4056

There is a unique feeling observing clouds below the mountain peaks. It gives you a whole different prospective of your surroundings. It means you have moved up the ladder higher in the sky. Maybe someday you could even walk in the clouds. Now that would be cool.

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.

Peyto Lake Banff National Park

This vibrant blue glacier-fed lake, located about 40 km (25 mi) north of Lake Louise in Banff National Park, is a popular stop for visitors travelling along the famed Icefields Parkway. Throughout the summer months, glacier rock flour flows into the lake, which gives the water its breathtaking colour.

Walking into the viewing area, we encountered snow. There were many people constantly coming and going here. I could not capture the whole of Peyto Lake. I lacked a wide-angled lense to get the whole lake into the photo.

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

 

When I First Saw You

When I First Saw You

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You called my name

You gave me your heart

I gave you my soul

You are my sweetheart

Yes my darling

You are my love

We are forever and more

Sealed with a kiss

A kiss of love

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You prayed for me

To be delivered to you

You waited four years long

Then I came along

You can rest your fears

Wash away your tears

You are in my arms

You will come to no harm

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You need not pretend

Not pretend, anymore

I am holding you

Our hearts will blend

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

Mica Bay, Lake Superior

Mica Bay, Lake Superior. This was one of my enjoyable evenings spent exploring the shoreline of Mica Bay, Lake Superior.

The evening was becoming late as I observed this scene. The lake was rolling gently. The exposure would be long. That would create a dreamy affect on the water. More so in the foreground. I cast around for a suitable collection of rocks at the water’s edge. The composition soon came together in my mind. I set my tripod as low as I could set it. Therefore, allowing me to create an illusion of less water. To tighten the composition I shot vertically. Too much water would spoil the effect of the composition.

I stretched out on the beach. Being eye level showed me my composition as I wanted it. Thus I was able to create my scene.
