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.


Daily Photo: Johnston Canyon

Johnston Canyon is located in Banff National Park. It’s a pleasant walk through what really should be called a gorge. I got this time exposure at one of the waterfalls along the trail.

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.

Why So Much Morbidity?

Another week has passed and it’s one week closer to the holidays. This week I’ve got a short post along with a link to a video from the Onion News Network. Don’t just read my thoughts, make sure you watch the clip too. Today’s photos are from Arches National Park, Utah, and another from Emerald Lake, in Canada. As for the video, please leave a comment – I’m curious to see what your thoughts are. Continue reading

Green Paradise

Good news. I recovered my photo library over the weekend so I am very happy about that! I will not be making mistakes like that for a long time. I have published a Desktop Wallpapers page this weekend too. If there are any of my photos that you would like for that purpose but are not available full size, please leave a comment and I may be able to upload a larger version. Today’s photos come from Montana and British Columbia — Glacier and Yoho National Parks respectively. My three part series on shining your light concludes this week also.

Let me know your thoughts! Continue reading

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.
