Default Maligne Lake, Jasper National Park

The 40+ km drive from Jasper to Maligne Lake was jaw dropping as the mountain landscape is so much different than in Banff National Park. I made a comment to my wife driving home to Calgary as we drove through Banff that the mountains look totally different.....comparing almost to foothills than the grand size of them in Jasper. Here is a little video clip of Jasper for you to watch. http://www.malignelake.com/MaligneLake.wmv

Really pretty scenes as always Kevin.

#1 the light on the mountains is gorgeous with the cloud/fog formations. however, i think the upper right corner is just too dark, to the point of distracting me from the beauty of the moutainside, maybe decrease the burning a little bit.


#2 very pretty, love the colors.


#3 that is a very intersting shot of the end of the rainbow. where is the leprechaun and the pot of gold? it is a bit soft, is it from heavy cropping or is it foggy or is there another reason.

As usual, you make the bright spots in the sky appear even brighter than what my monitor possibly can. Great shots!

Thanks again Dustin and vvcarpio for swing'n by.

The softness is due to extreme cropping. Here is the wide look.

I really like the wide look here. The curve of the rainbow paralleling the treeline and at odds with the bend in the road. very nice.

I forgot to post one more. This scene is heading toward the rain storm and the rainbow shot is passing the storm and looking back.

Thanks again Dustin.

Wow that last rainbow shot tells me that the pot of gold is very close by.... well thats what us Irish cousin connections were told.. "at the end of every rainbow there is a pot of gold" Well don't you believe that!? Did you go see... you may have passed up a pot of gold!? Great shots all of them....I need to go back up to MT Rainer and get some good mt shots... Yet!

As always Kevin, I bow down to greatness! You definitely inspire us who are learning.

I loved all the photos. You have a gift and I appreciate, as always, your postings.

SharpShotGal, there was a pot of gold there and I snatched it up! Can't wait to see more of your MT Rainer shots.

Shutterbug, thanks for your kind words but I don't know about greatness.....I take my share of bad photos to get one that looks ok. I too have much learning to do and many more sites to discover but I'm glad your inspired! Don't forget to plan a trip this way.

Kevin
