Vermillion Lakes Sunrise, Banff National Park: ISO 400, 7mm, f/3.5, 1/1600

Took this image one morning last summer before all the tourists were awake. It was very peaceful. A summer storm was forecasted for later that morning. I was capturing the dramatic sky and the beginning of this storm.

Invermere Sunset II
Sunset at Invermere: ISO 200, 11mm, f/5.6, 1/500

I took this at a roadside rest area between Radium and Invermere, British Columbia last summer. This is the area where you can usually spot the bighorn sheep eating along the roadside.

I was lucky to catch the break in the heavy cloud cover with the setting sun trying to breakthrough.

I took a lot of photos that evening and also took the time to soak in all the scenery.

A Walk in the Woods (Revelstoke National Park): ISO 800, 15mm, f/5.0, 1/50

This is a picture from last fall. Taken the same day as the Stellar Jay in Revelstoke National Park posted earlier.

It was a great easy hike through the thick forest by way of a boardwalk. If not for the boardwalk you would almost think you were walking in a magical place with no civilization around.
