Daily Photo: Castle Mountain

Today’s photo is of Castle Mountain in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. The Bow River is flowing by in the foreground. As always, let me know if you would like to enjoy any of my photos on your desktop or wall. And if you like it, why not ‘like’ it on Facebook below the photo.

Vermillion Lakes – Banff National Park

We went out to Vermillion Lakes hoping for a nice sunset despite the overcast weather. Nothing happened for a good while. We were about to leave, as we thought the sun had gone down already and we wanted avoid the incoming rain that you can see on the left of the photo, when the sun broke through onto Mt Rundle. The rainbow came a little later and added to the already spectacular scene.

Canada Update

Canada has been amazing! We haven’t had the opportunity to stop much in the last week and have seen so much. In fact I have taken almost as many photos here in Banff and Jasper as I had taken in the 2 weeks before hand. I’ve just gone through some of the highlights for you.

The first is of the Vancouver Legislature building

We left Vancouver Island last Sunday morning and headed towards the Rockies. This image was shot while going up the gondola to Sulphur Mountain looking down on the Banff township.

The wildlife we’ve seen includes a black bear, a few mountain sheep wandering around near the side of the road as well as a few Canadian geese on the lakes around Banff. We have seen more but not too many photos of them all.

There was a stunning sunset at the same lakes as the geese above. We got a couple of rainbows, rain, and stunning light on Mt Rundle.

Moraine Lake

A very cheeky chipmunk

Peyto Lake. Aunty Bev said this is the first time she has seen it with a reflection like this. You can click on the photo for the desktop size.

Nick and I found this beautiful spot on the road up to Jasper. The second one is desktop size.
