Kia ora Barbara,
I love the whole scene, the river, the mountains, and that blazing blue sky. I imagine it being morning, putting my pack on and having the whole day to explore those far off peaks. I start my day here in NZ with a big smile Barbara. Cheers!
Aroha,
Robb

Holy Cow! I didn't really know how fantastic that photo was until I enlarged it. I live in a beautiful area so it is hard to impress me but this did:-)

Leah, this scene reminded me of those hot, hazy days of summer that Alberta is famous for.

Wil, this location is just east of the Banff National Park boundary. Canmore is a stepping off point to head south to the Kananaskis Provincial Park.

Robb, the view is east with a noon-day sun. Some people canoe the Bow River from the Banff Springs Hotel after Bow Falls down to Canmore or even Calgary.

Cloudia, everyone's soul needs a lift, which is why I post the landscapes.

Ronda, I try to locate photos that resonate with artistic clarity. There are other photos equally as nice as this one on this blog.

I so love all the different shaped mountains in the photos on your blog, Barbara! These are amazing, and the tall shapes of the trees in front draw the eye in.
