Simple Serenity

     Stay the night in Canmore, up at 5:30 am, drive through McDonalds, $20.00 park entry fee, get off the highway before Banff and a few minutes later, this scene is there to greet us.
    Mount Rundle reflecting in Two Jack Lake is very popular with tourists and also photographers. Literally thousands of people have stood exactly where I was standing and composed almost identical images. That being said, it doesn't make the scene any less beautiful. Besides, I was the only one there taking photographs at the time. So that means I captured this image, with this light, at this particular time of day, from this angle and no one else can say that. This is a one of a kind photograph of a scene that is often photographed, that will never be repeated. That is the beauty of photography. Thanks for looking!


  1. Wonderful picture! Perfect composition! Great moment!
    We plan to go to Ireland this year - and I hope to get some shots like this - or at least one :-)
    Have a beautiful day, Ulina

  2. Thanks Ulina! I would love to go to Ireland. I'm sure you will come away with many great photos.
