Bow Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta. Bow Lake is approximately 30 minutes north of Lake Louise, off the Icefields Parkway (Hwy 93) in the Canadian Rockies and a half mile north of the Crowfoot Glacier. Sitting at an elevation of 1,920 m (6,300 ft), it is one of the largest lakes in Banff National Park. Fed by meltwater from the Bow Glacier in the Wapta Icefield, the lake lies at the base of Bow Summit, which is perfectly reflected in its aquamarine waters on a calm day. hashtaglake hashtagphotography hashtaglake hashtagcomposition hashtagmountain hashtagAlberta hashtagbanffnationalpark hashtagkenbennison hashtagBowLake hashtagscenery hashtagBow Glacier

I was attracted to what looked like scattered pieces of rock. There is a break between the peaks. Therefore I set up a composition using the break in the peaks to emphasize the flow of rock pieces on the snow. The location is the Bow Lake area in Banff National Park, Alberta.

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.
