Natural landscapes: the ‘consolation’ of autumn

AUTUMN AT CONSOLATION VALLEY, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA

An easy hike from renowned Moraine Lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, hikers are rewarded with two alpine lakes (Lower Consolation Lake can be seen here), a glacier hanging off Quadra Mountain (on the right) and adjacent Mt. Bident. The glowing orange is from larch trees on the slopes of Panorama Ridge.
This is a truly astounding part of God’s Banff National Park cathedral – even in the snow that started falling on our way back to the parking lot.  🙂
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
