O'Hara of Yesteryear ?

      This was taken on a recent hiking trip to Lake O'Hara in Yoho Park, B.C.   This area of the Canadian Rockies is a very popular destination as people from all over the world come to visit. There are hiking trails for all levels, from the easy loop around the lake to the more strenuous alpine circuit and everything in between.   
     One evening we decided to walk around the lake as some in our party wanted to do some fishing. I came across this old bench and decided it would make a nice photograph. This is facing north to the lodge and cabins with Cathedral Mountain in the background. 
     As I was processing this image I decided to give it an old photograph feel as well as reducing the clarity a little to make the background mountains more painterly.
