Off to Banff...

View from Wilcox Pass

I will be away from post­ing for a lit­tle while (although to be hon­est, I haven’t been post­ing a whole lot any­ways — sorry), as I’m off to Banff National Park to go camp­ing for a cou­ple weeks. I’m pretty excited — I spend most of my time pho­tograph­ing in the Rocky Moun­tains in Jasper National Park, so it’ll be fun to explore some new areas (with my cam­era along the whole time, of course).

Hope­fully, I’ll be able to share some new work with you once I get back, but in the mean­time I thought I’d post this photo taken half-way between Jasper and Banff, along the Ice­fields Park­way (one of the most beau­ti­ful dri­ves in the world). We parked near the Ice­fields Inter­pre­tive Cen­tre, and climbed up along the Wilcox Pass trail on the other side of the val­ley as the glac­i­ers. What I love about this photo is the scale of the view. If you click to enlarge the image, you can just see the trail run­ning down to the right, and there’s even a cou­ple of (very small) hik­ers on it.

This week­end I’m going through pho­tos that I’ve taken in the last year or so as I pre­pare for this year’s Gold­bar sale (see pre­vi­ous post for details). It’s great look­ing back at these pho­tos, remem­ber­ing the times I was out to cap­ture them, and real­iz­ing that it’s been far too long since I’ve updated my web­site to share some of these with you. So, per­haps for the next few posts I’ll show you some of the images I have par­tic­u­larly enjoyed re-discovering as a teaser for the web­site updates I’m cur­rently work­ing on (shouldn’t be too long now…).

I took this pho­to­graph while hik­ing the Sul­phur Sky­line trail in Jasper National Park. It’s a shorter hike, with pretty steep (and con­stant) ele­va­tion gain, and the view from the top is incred­i­ble. This one is from the way back down (eas­ier to think about mak­ing pho­tographs once the pulse has slowed down a lit­tle), look­ing south­east I believe – which would make this either Utopia Moun­tain or Mount O’Hagan. Does any­body know for sure? Besides the view, the best thing about this hike is that the trail­head is a few hun­dred meters from the Miette hot­springs – def­i­nitely a great way to end a day of climb­ing, I would cer­tainly rec­om­mend it next time you’re in Jasper.
