A late summer early morning reflection at Herbert Lake.


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

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

Bow Lake, Banff National Park, Canada

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.

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***

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians!


Mistaya River, Banff National Park, Canada

From all of our travels I have to say that Moraine Lake in Canada is the standout. We only spent two days in the immediate area. This was a side trip during our visit to Glacier National Park. The entire countyside in Montana and Canada is amazing.

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.

I rarely take photos at noon-time, however hiking to destinations dictates its own shooting schedule.


Schaffer Lake is what I'd call an alpine tarn as opposed to a lake. It is an important 4-way intersection in the trails around Lake O'Hara. Mt. Huber is in the background.


Temperatures here in Alberta have dropped to highs of only around 12C with lots of cloudy days since I took this shot on Monday----a precursor to our autumn weather----What happened to summer???


Have a great Friday and Happy Weekend to all!


Yoho National Park, Canada

With a "bright" idea, my son's help and a supply of sparklers, I came up with this way of celebrating our 144th Birthday as a nation.

Located just inside the park boundary, off Highway 6, the Bison Paddock Loop Road provides an opportunity to see these magnificent animals in their natural grassland habitat.


This bull was watching me carefully with the cows and calves behind him over the next rise.

On the north shore of Emerald Lake the view back to the aptly-named Emerald Lake Lodge is sublime. The easy hike around the lake reveals many lovely vistas including this reflection on a calm morning.

The Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) is a goose with a black head and neck, white patches on the face, and a brownish-gray body. Native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, it is occasionally found in northern Europe, and has been introduced to other temperate regions....Wikipedia

The Peyto Lake viewpoint at Bow Summit is filled with tour buses and visitors all summer. I managed to get there early enough to avoid the hordes and catch some nice early morning light and that beautiful aqua color below.

The colours of Peyto Lake are a draw for travellers on the Banff-Jasper highway.


The hiss of air brakes of a tourist bus and the small crowd of people encroaching on the limited view sent me fleeing from the public platform into the forest--- still sloppy with some wet snow from a late summer snowfall--- to take this shot.


Upon returning to my vehicle I got to practice my Boy Scout talents from my youth. A couple of women had locked their keys in their rental vehicle's trunk. After many minutes trying to enter, I chose to drive one of them down to Lake Louise Village to get some pro help. All turned out well, despite my rusty car-break-in skills :)


Banff National Park, Canada

From a rainy day in the Canadian Rockies, just a few moments of sunlight broke through.

The first time I saw this lake 50 years ago it was full and I was mystified about what had happened to all the water. It turns out that the Maligne River pours into the lake from the south and drains out through sinkholes in the bottom. The water then streams through a cave system formed in the slightly soluble limestone rock, surfacing again in the area of Maligne Canyon 16 kilometers downstream.


Summer melt water coming into the lake exceeds the capacity of the sinkholes to drain it. Decreased melt water in the late summer and fall means that the lake's sinkholes can drain the lake faster then the Maligne River can fill it. This creates the disappearing lake phenomena. The United Nations created the Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site partly because of this unique drainage system.


Hope everyone has a great week ahead. Thanks, as always, for stopping by and for all of your kind comments -- I appreciate them all.

Mount Robson is the most prominent mountain in North America's Rocky Mountain range; it is also the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. The mountain is located entirely within Mount Robson Provincial Park of British Columbia, and is part of the Rainbow Range. Mount Robson is the second highest peak entirely in British Columbia, behind Mount Waddington in the Coast Range. The south face of Mount Robson is clearly visible from the Yellowhead Highway, and is one of the most photographed features along this route. Mount Robson was likely named after Colin Robertson, who worked for both the North West Company and the Hudson’s Bay Company at various times in the early 19th century.


El Monte Robson es el punto más alto de las Canadian Rockies (Montañas Rocosas canadienses). El Monte Robson se encuentra en el Parque Provincial Monte Robson de la Columbia Británica. Monte Robson fue probablemente el nombre que le dio Colin Robertson. Los primeros habitantes de la zona lo llaman Yuh-hai-ha-kun o «La Montaña de la Carretera en Espiral». Otros nombres no oficiales incluyen «Montaña del sombrero de nube» y «Montaña del sombrero de nieve».
