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.
