The June monsoon is nearing its end in Banff National Park and it appears as if summer is about to reach the Canadian Rockies at last. While open water provides thrills of all kinds to a variety of visitors, it is particularly precious to landscape photographers, who get their “foregrounds” and reflections back! Photography on the “sacred shores” of the Canadian Rockies is very special for many. I for one certainly plan to spend a good time wandering around the lakes of Banff National Park over the coming months. I will be sure to share some of the scenes that I encounter along the way. In the meantime, here is my little tribute to those lakes, in the form of a whirlwind tour of the most accessible ones. To add a little depth to the post I selected images that provide a somewhat different perspective of the lakes. Here’s to a long summer and endless reflections!
