A late summer early morning reflection at Herbert Lake.

 

With a temperature right around the freezing mark, a lovely mist floated across the water.

 

Banff National Park, Canada

As we approach the middle of February, it certainly seems like mid-March in the Rockies.

 

Earlier this week, warm air spilling across the Divide from BC collided with cooler air making for mainly cloud and grey everywhere.

 

But---for a brief few moments--- some blues showed through the boundary between the layers of air under Castle Mountain.

Very rarely if ever have I caught two of these geese nearly synchronized and in focus....(This one is severely cropped)

Not the usual view of Lake Louise, but the contrast of lake color and grey sky was most evident looking towards the murky skies above Mt. Fairview. The snow line is about at 2000 metres a.s.l., and that is only coming down now as November is here.

Happy Canada Day!

 

"This special holiday celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. The origin of the name "Canada" comes from the expedition of explorer Jacques Cartier up the St. Lawrence River in 1535. The Iroquois pointing out the route to the village of Stadacona, the future site of Quebec City, used the word "kanata," the Huron-Iroquois word for village."

A different perspective of iconic Peyto Lake (more views below). The beauty of Canada is world famous and awe inspiring.

 

Wishing all my Canadian friends and all the fans of Canada a Happy Canada Day!

I'm always intrigued by the distinct lines of Mt. Chester. This shot is taken just above the basin of Chester Lake after a 2 hour snowshoe into this beautiful backcountry location.

I could hear these Canada Geese before I could see them, luckily I had already set the camera up to take this scene the geese were a complete surprise!

A day with my eldest son up on the Odaray Plateau yielded some great colour with the larches in autumn display.

Happy Weekend to All!

Orcas surfacing in the glassy waters of Johnstone strait, BC.

What a place for meditation!

 

About 800 feet above the Waterton townsite, the Bear's Hump was vacant of visitors while I sat and pondered.

 

I had not hiked up here for years, and on a rare windless noon-hour, it was just beautiful. Looking south to the U.S. border halfway down the lake, I remembered scrambling up and camping out on the upper slopes of gigantic Mt. Cleveland(centre-left of photo) many moons ago in--- Glacier National Park, Montana.

Anyone that knows me, knows of my huge passion and love for boats, ships and tugs.

The Ku'ulakai is by far my most favorite tug.

This beautiful old girl is being lovingly refit and moored in the historic, fishing village of Steveston.

Here she proudly displays the Canadian Flag in honor of Canada's 150th Aniversary.

Located in Richmond, BC

Again, my last shooting day started at Two Jack Lake, fifteen minutes outside the town of Banff.

 

I've shot this reflection before, but the little island in the foreground has lost a tree or two since then.

 

It was so peaceful early in the morning that I think I'll look at this image before starting my teaching day tomorrow.

 

*** Our forecasters have issued a statement that temperatures here are dropping tonight from 20+C down to the single digits with---gulp---"snow" in the forecast...I know it will melt in the coming week, but I'm just not ready for it yet***

♪♫♬ I told this guy where I was from

He said oh, Canada

Kinda laughs it off, real funny huh?

Yeah, uh, come on

1-2, 1-2,

Mic. check, 1-2, 1-2

Yeah

(O Canada)

Uh, yeah

From the land of the lost

Trans-Canada cross

Patriotic and a honor

With a hand on my heart

From the greatest of lakes

To the greenest of greens

To the rockiest mountains

And everything in between

O-o-o Canada

Oh you're no fan of us?

'Cause our movie and TV shows are so amateur?

Yeah, we laugh at off, that don't really bother me

Look, we ain't serious unless you really gotta be

Humorous attitude like Kids in the Hall

Like Jim Carrey Mike Myers yeah we claiming them all

It's the great white north

Home of the funniest actors

The butt of the joke

With an abundance of laughter

The red and white flag

Keep it high keep it visual

People see Canada and get stereotypical

Think we finish every sentence with buddy or bye

And if it ain't that its either dude, eh or guy

(Canataka A)

Yeah we considerate people

And smoking marijuana

We consider it legal

Still doing rap like the 1990's

But that's how we like it off timed and grimy

I know where I'm from and I told ya before

North of America hard to ignore

Every time I go away I tell them for sure

I'm from Canada o-o-o Canada

O Canada o-o-o Canada

(O canada)

I'm from Canada

O-o-o Canada

I've been around the globe and

Heard the confusion

Honestly a lot o y'all are ignorant and stupid

Yes, we have microwaves, tv's and cell phones

Unintelligent fuck we invented the telephone

We made Yahtzee

The light bulb, hockey

And bred the greatest playa's Gretzky to Crosby

We all got at least one drinking buddy

And after one drink, all of us think we're funny

Our national mascot's a damn beaver

O Canada we love our beaver

Home o' Hell's Angels the North-CMP

Home of Gordon Lightfoot and SCTV

No doubt, the underground railroad

Georges St. Pierre

Right here is where he calls home

Our health care system

Y'all know its free

Keep a girl banging with a full mouth of teeth

I won't even get into the music industry

They say hip hop is dead

Naw its up north with me

I could do this all day its a part of my routine

But supper's almost done and tonight poutine

I know where I'm from and I told ya before

North of America hard to ignore

Every time I go away I tell em for sure

I'm from Canada o-o-o Canada

**(I'm from the east coast of Canada)

O-o-o Canada

(I'm from the east east east coast)

Yo yo!

See I'm from Canada so sometimes the words come out of my mouth like this

Get used to it ♪♫♬

Classified - Oh Canada

 

**I'm not originally from Canada, but 10 years of freezing my face here makes me one. Happy 150th, my adopted home! :black_large_square::maple_leaf::black_large_square:

Penticton residents and visitors were treated to a spectacular sunset over Okanagan Lake on Friday evening. I can't think of a better way to begin the Canada Day long weekend and celebrations!

 

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Flickr Canadians :-)

 

From the Odaray Highline trail the view down to Lake O'Hara was just gorgeous on this afternoon. The larches were in full fall display. My son and I were headed for a shoulder of Mt. Odaray and just had to stop and soak it all in.

A Re-Edit of one of my all time favourite images from my trip to Canada, plus I had the pleasure of spending my 40th Birthday in one of the most beautiful parts of our tiny world.

A view of the long ridge leading to Mt. Chephren north of the Waterfowl Lakes with a subtle reflection in the backwaters.

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians!

 

Mistaya River, Banff National Park, Canada

Already the sun had been lighting the peaks for an hour or so around Bow Lake when it actually rose above the ridge to the south. The driftwood and shoreline made a good foreground, in my opinion.

Little Linnet Lake---according to a shoreline plaque--- formed after the last Ice Age. A block of ice (I imagine it would have to be pretty big :) )was left on site and melted creating this pond-sized lake. It sits beneath the Prince of Wales Hotel and the ridge to the south blocks that famous Waterton wind (momentarily) creating a nice reflection on this morning.

 

Alberta, Canada

The reflections at this location are always different whenever I arrive. This morning it was very calm and quiet with fresh snow (yikes!) near the summits of surrounding peaks.

 

Upper Waterfowl Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Probably a million times photographed, but still it was the first time I did :)

While shooting at Bow Lake, the front-lit scenes usually captivate. I turned to look for more mist to frame when the sun came over the ridge to my left and thought: " I like that ".

 

Happy Friday and Weekend to All !

 

Banff National Park, Canada

A late summer mist starts to drift off Bow Lake on this gorgeous morning. The bulk of Crowfoot Mountain is lit and reflected across the water.

A beautiful waterfall on my way to Jasper. The water spray was very intense, when the sunset light was hitting the trees...

Stunning reflection opportunities are abound in Canada's national Parks, with endless beautiful lakes, and day s and days of no wind...breathtaking .

I took this image with my son Justin in August of 2014. It was my last shoot with my Olympus 4/3rds camera. I ended up selling all that equipment and went back to a Nikon D700. Been some time since I have posted, and wanted to say Happy New Year to all my wonderful friends who inspire me with their imagery. All the Best.
