Let Your Mind Be Peaceful

There is peace and quiet standing here. Let your eyes absorb the beauty. Let the day be yours. In the surrounding mountains.

Lake Minnewanka, September 2018

The mountains in the background. Rocky shoreline. A point of land with color. This allowed me to create this composition. The photo had originally been posted in color.

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.
