In the late spring I dragged the family out to the Grotto Creek Canyon Trail in Kananaskis. We’d attempted the hike before, when the kids were much younger, without success. This time we made it past the brush under the powerlines to the good bit — actually hiking up the creek.
I drove out to Abraham Lake early on a Sunday morning. With temperatures around -25˙, the warmer waters of the lake were practically steaming which — in turn — frosted the trees nearby.
I discovered the bracketing button on my camera. HDR is amazing!
A classic shot of Lake Louise on a calm morning.
I took this early on a Sunday morning, and the boardwalk/beach was practically deserted. I met the only other person out that early, a woman from Ontario. It was her first time in the Rockies, and she was desperate to take in as much as she could before she went home.
But it’s never enough.
