Canadian Rockies Tour!

BLOG: Canadian Rockies August 2011 – Images by Art Wolfe

The Canadian Rockies never disappoint. The scenery is the finest you’ll ever want to see, and I was so pleased to share some of my favorite locations with a small group of fellow photographers. We rode on horseback into Jasper National Park’s Tonquin Valley and rose before dawn to photograph the fleeting sunrises. The weather was mercurial: one moment the sun was glinting off the Amethyst Lakes, the next we were being stung in the face with granular snow blowing sideways. We huddled for a few minutes in a defensive circle like muskox and let the storm blow by. There was still ice on many of the lakes and we were able to experiment with abstract macro shots, which was a terrific contrast to the expansive landscape around us. Glacial powder blue Peyto Lake never disappoints and Lake Louise with its bloodred canoes is always iconic. I look forward to taking another group back soon!
