1 Hector Lake (along the Icefields Parkway) is yet another popular stop-off site for tourist buses - I was inundated with travellers asking me questions, and getting me to take their pictures.
2 Peyto Lake is a tourist's destination... I was swamped with visitors from the world over trying to nab this shot. The blue water is from suspended rock flour caused by glacial movement.
3 Close-up of Mount Rundle from Two Jack Lake.
4 Morraine Lake - close to Lake Loiuse - is a popular spot for tourists year-round. The pile of gravel at the foot of the mountain is cause by frost shattering.
5 Mount Yamnuska, or "Yam", marks the transition from foothills to the Rockies along the Trans-Canada highway.
6 Another shot of Mount Yamnuska, converted to watercolor thanks to Photoshop and various filters.
7 In Alberta, there are cows... feeding them takes a bit of work.
8 I just finished shooting another image at sunrise, and was packing up, when I turned and saw this!
9 Castle Mountain
10 The famous Morants Curve, named after the photographer commissioned by the railway. Along Hwy 1A.
11 Winter photography close to home in Calgary...
12 That's my wife Moira's silhouette at Levina Lookout in BC.
13 Alberta's famous Burmis Tree - over 700 years old!
14 Burmis Tree from another angle, another day...
15 Ospreys are also called sea hawks - eat mostly fish, and build they nests on the shoreline.
16 Hiking up to Idaho lookout - lots of wild flowers.
17 Idaho lookout, BC
18 The Alberta Badlands are very pictuesque, and a popular tourist destination in and around Dinosaur Provincial Park.
19 Just west of Calgary, the foothils lead into the Rockies...
20 Other than the Humour section, this is the only image I didn't shoot - my wife had more patience than I did, waiting for the droves of tourists to disappear out of site. Took her 20 minutes to shoot this hoodoo in the Alberta Badlands.
21 On a road trip coming back from Saskatoon to Calgary, this pond in Saskatchewan caught my eye... the three trees begged to be photographed.
22 A clear sunny day is a difficult time to shoot waterfalls and have them turn out silky like this - I had to use 3 filters to stop down the exposure: a polarizer, an ND grad, and a neutral density. Tangle Falls, along the Icefields Parkway in Alberta.
23 A BC sunset, somewhere around Vancouver, circa 1996.
