  1. Another of the images I have been printing. This was in the Canadian rockies, near Banff National Park or possibly Jasper National Park. I was not using my GPS on this trip ... big mistake!!

  4. This image has everything: interesting sky, water, mountains, valley, trees, overall composition and tonalities seemingly throughout the range of darkest to brightest tones.

  5. Very nice. I took a wider view from the same spot in '07. It's along the Icefields Parkway (Hwy 93) somewhere between Jasper and the Columbia Ice Fields. Jim has the river right.

  8. Thanks!! When traveling, I now have the GPS adapter that plugs into the camera ... helps a LOT!!

  9. Ken - That's a great composition in B&W. I bet it would make a great metal print. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Thanks!! Totally stunned, I am!! Maybe all those Ansel Adams books I have been reading the past few months have had a little effect!!

    Another great shot. But you know that it's not fair to be showing Banff and Jasper landscapes . . . every bend on that Icefield's Highway has a stunning view ;)

    Just out of curiosity, what lens were you using?
