Bow Lake

Once again, to continue with my fog phase I seem to be having is Crowfoot Mountain. The fog clouds slowly start to rise as the morning sun rises.

This little stream will run along to Bow Lake which sits at the base of Crowfoot Mountain. The lake is one of many that sit along the Icefields Parkway.


I went out late last night around midnight in search of the Milky Way. It was a clear night in Calgary but as I got further west into the mountains the weather started turning. It was late and I was tired so I decided to keep going and head up to Bow Lake, camp out for the night and get up for sunrise in the morning.

I woke up in the morning to snow… a lot of snow! and it was coming down hard! I got my things together, headed out on to the lake and patiently waited for the sun to rise and the clouds to clear. Unfortunately that didn’t happen and the snow came down harder and harder.

This is the pick of bunch from this morning at Bow Lake… Let’s call it a poor man’s homage to Ansel Adams or Olivier Du Tre I did some more shooting at another location on the way home which I will get to later but now I think it’s time for a nap. I’m buggered!

Enjoy.
