Along The Logging Road

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.

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.

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.
