Today wasn't really going to be a day for photo's as I left Calgary too late. I helplessly watched the sun set as I battled the Albertan traffic.
I passed Lake Minnewanka, near Banff as the last light faded and decided to shoot the early evening stars. It was wonderful out there. Nobody around and, really, not a sound to be heard. My ears were sensitive to anything at this point...it is bear country after all. Winter is coming!
Night fell and the stars showed themselves. It was an incredible moment.
I moved on to Lake Louise where I was staying the night, had dinner and convinced myself to go up to the lake and try some moonlight images. I was exhausted as it was almost midnight at this point but I am so glad I went. I have really battled to get something good at Lake Louise over the years and I think these are my best so far.
