Default Banff National Park

We went to the Banff National Park for the Easter Week-End with family who came from Quebec City.

Those are some of the shots I took:

Mt. Rundle's Reflection:


Reflection (kind of the same as above but with a different angle and post-processing):


Nice place to go down the hill with a Crazy Carpet (you might want to Google it to know what it is) .... however, it might be the first and last time doing it there...



And finally, another shot at Lac Louise (from a view point who is usually too busy to take a shot on daytime):


I removed every colours on the above shot but kept the green and red ... I kind of like it

This is one of those "bucket list" places I have to see at some point. Crazy Carpets just sound like another way for me to break a leg while on vacation

very nice Folob!

I don't know about the crazy carpet but I'd sure love to drop in there on snowboard!

Nice job Folob and I don't think I'll be going down that slope on a crazy carpet let alone skis. It certainly is God's country isn't it, just beautiful.

I don't think you will want to do it at this specific place. However: http://www.skibanff.com/sunshine-village/trail-maps/ and http://banffnorquay.com/terrain-park/ are close by and http://www.skilouise.com/the-mountai...trail-maps.php is 25 minutes away ...

Thumbs up

Those are excellent shots of a beautiful location. I think my favorite is your shot #4 where it is B&W except for the greens and reds. That worked really well.

The last shot seems to say spring is on the way. I like it.
