One thing I very much enjoy is to be able to take a few hours to drive and find photo opps such as these. I normally have no destination in mind....just drive.

This morning I headed out to the Rocky Mountains - Banff, Lake Louise and Castle Mountain. I wanted to catch the effects of the sun rise.

20d, 17-85mm IS and 70 - 200 2.8 Non IS.

Spy, these are great! All are thought provoking images, and the first has an ethereal feel to it, IMO. Nice work. Robert

Thanks for all compliments!

I was actually surprised to see open water at Vermilion Lakes in Banff, Alberta as the temperatures this winter has been very cold and the day that I took these shots it was -33 celcius with not much wind at all. When I spotted the steam rising from parts of the lake from the highway, I drove down and realized that the open water areas were being fed by hot springs coming out of the ground and seeping into the lake.

Banff has hot springs that the public has to pay to see or swim in but what puzzled me was the fact that this area isn't policed by the federal parks employees keeping the public away or at the very least with such an amazing area with natural hot springs they don't make people pay to get up close. I'm glad it's free access but the habitat is also very vulnerable to people trashing the area and throwing beer and pop cans in the water.
