Mountain Landscapes: Sunrise at Bow Lake
SUNRISE AT BOW LAKE
I’m not sure there’s ever a bad time to visit Alberta’s glorious Banff National Park, especially in winter. Unlike other parts of the province, it’s always reliably *winter* in the Rocky Mountains. This photograph was made in late February on the Icefields Parkway, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful drives on this planet. I wish there was snow on the trees, but I think this scene still works well. The peak, by the way, is Crowfoot Mountain. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter. If you’re wondering why the distant trees seem a bit hazy, it’s because ice fog was drifting through at the time (the temperature was -15C).
