This is a view of St Mary’s Lake BC. It is a view of the back end of the lake. My brother Bob and I turned on to a gravel logging road. The road climbed ‘higher and higher till we were traveling above St. Mary’s Lake. As is always the case on these roads, you are enclosed by trees on either side of you. When an open towards the lake appears,you can pull over and photograph.
Now here we have a scene of tremendous depth. The valley between the mountains goes to infinity. The shadows are deep. Beautiful clouds to fill the background.

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.
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 Lake area in British Columbia. This was open land that was a beautiful yellow orange color. The new growth of evergreens slowly creeping along. This is Nature at work.Then the mountains in the background.
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.
I would like to take this time to thank everyone for joining me on Linkedin. By sharing my photographic work, It is my desire to show that Canada is a beautiful country. It only takes a moment in our busy lives to stop and observe our surroundings. There is beauty everywhere.
From my family to your family, Happy New Year. Please be safe

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.
