Outstanding, especially the last one, a magnificent landscape. It looks like you were practically standing in the water.

In fact .... I was standing on water ... On a small cruise boat at the end of the Minnewanka Lake

At this point, the lake (about 27 km long) is basically at the beginning of the rockies.

That last shot is most definitely a winner.

You folks up in the North really have the ability to capture those beautiful deep blue skies. There is too much moisture and pollution where I am - in the summer. Our skies are generally have more haze this time of year.

That last one is a great shot and perspective, I love the way it feeds back into a sort of vanishing point

....definitely my kind of place, nice photos and the last one is really nice IMO!

Zig said, "Our skies are generally have more haze this time of year." Greg & I say some to Texas if you want to see a bright sky. I was at the lake this am 1/2 hour before sunrise and already the sky was 'blowing' in the photos.

Really blue skies disappeared a long time ago, in any area with a lot of commercial jet traffic. That "haze" is ice crystals at 30,000 feet from the jet turbine exhaust. Canmore, Alberta doesn't have much jet traffic overhead. (Not that that isn't a really good photo.)

In fact, there is some jet traffic in the area (Calgary to Vancouver, Victoria, US West coast or even Asia) ... But it is usually just a bit south fom where I was.
