Bow Lake Reflection

Peyto Lake in Banff National Park

The Canadian Rockies where superlatives of grandeur become mute in a landscape abounding with peaks competing to dominate the sky, psychedelic lakes that contend for the coolest colors of the light spectrum and rivers that appear to be a pleasing, yet reality defying mistakes in Photoshop.

Being one of the most photogenic landscapes on earth, we have all seen photos of its break away stars, iconic landscapes like Moraine Lake, Lake Louise, and Peyto Lake, but there is so much more. No matter which direction you go, it as if you had the Colorado’s San Juan Range on one side of the road, Idaho’s Sawtooth Range on the other, and California’s  Sierra Nevada around the bend. All surging with prodigious streams and waterfalls spilling out of the glaciers like the Chugach Range of Alaska. Of course, all the water feeds the panoply of the colorful lakes that make the place famous.

I have had the pleasure of visiting Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Yoho National Park, and Waterton National Park, and they have wet my appetite to see more. Kootenay National and British Columbia’s Glacier National Park I’m sure are as good as the rest, hosting their own endless procession of pyramid-shaped peaks hemming in broad alpine valleys and glacier feed lakes

I have written how, where I live, close to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone has an embarrassment of riches, but I’m afraid the Canadian Rockies has hoarded more than its share of wilderness splendor relegating northwest Wyoming a notch or two down on the “embarrassment of riches scale, and I wish the Canadian Rockies weren’t so far away.

It is my pleasure to lead photography tours into the Canadian Rockies’ crown jewels, Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks

Banff Summer Photography Tour
July 13  - July 17th, 2018
Limited to 4 participants.
$3,200.00

We base out of a hotel at Lake Louse because of its central location in Banff National Park From Lake Louise we can access the wonders surrounding the town of Banff and its environs to the east. We can dash over the continental divide to British Columbia and Yoho National Park to the west and the wonders of the Icefields Parkway to the north. Best of all we are close to Moraine Lake, my favorite spot in Banff National Park.   If at first we can’t capture it the way I like it, we can try again and again.

Banff dishes up many opportunities for spectacular scenery, fields of wildflowers, and the abundance of wildlife. Whether you're after bears, elk, and sheep, chances are we will find them in a lush valley bottom or clinging to an impossible cliff.

We will meet up early afternoon for lunch on the 13th then go out for an evening shoot. The ensuing days will find us at dark thirty waiting for the sunrise over a (hopefully) reflective lake followed by the waterfalls and mountain landscapes of morning.   We will try to make it back to the hotel for a mid-day break before the evening shoot but opportunity has a way of getting in the way of proper rest. We will conclude after using up the morning light on August 17th. Giving you enough time to depart or better yet, to explore more on your own.
