Reflections :: The Canadian Rockies

Just back from a photographer's dream trip - the Canadian Rockies. Oh my! The vistas were breathtaking. I'll admit that some of the 'breathtaking' was from hiking at these altitudes. We spent six days in the Banff National Park and then a few days in Vancouver. I had two cameras and was a really annoying hiking partner for my husband as I kept having to stop and shoot photos. I am sure that on more than one occasion he turned around to say something to me and I was way back on the trail (this also could have had a little bit to do with the fact that he is a FAST hiker and I am a SLOW hiker!). 

I shot hundreds and hundreds of pictures so I am going to share selections incrementally and here is the first installment. One day we hiked in the area around Jasper. All these photos are from that day. While I have cropped some they are otherwise unedited. These colors are for real! The light that day was exquisite and this lake was so still that it produced these amazing cloud reflections.

Lovely pictures Judith! I can almost visualise you drawing colour inspiration from these images and transforming them into fabulous pieces of jewellery. All the best.
