    Somewhere near Banff

    This was a coach stop on the way to catch a train in Banff but just exactly where it is escapes me. I really must keep a notebook with me.

    Hi John:
    I'm heading to Banff in late September. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Nice shot John, lovely colours.

    We visited the Canadian Rockies last year and it is a wonderful place in my opinion (and not bad for photography either !). I believe you have a shot of Mt Rundle there, probably taken from the Two Jack Lake picnic ground. I didn't actually get a shot from that vantage point but took some in nearby areas such as Johnstone Lake and Cascade Pond. This area is just to the north of Banff. I have an ebook which lists all the good vantage spots for photographers in this area, with sample photos.

    As one who has visited the area twice, I encourage you to share the information about that eBook so others can benefit from it.

    Very nice photo that represents the general area well.

    Two suggestions for improving it: There seems to be a person dressed in red behind the tree on the right. Do some cloning to eliminate the red clothing. Also consider cropping to eliminate about half of the sky.

    Mike I have referred to these books before in one or two threads. But many would not have seen these and I'm happy to share the source again. I found these books invaluable as they give a lot of detailed information that photographers are interested in (detailed location, best vantage points, time and light information, seasonal variances etc). They also contain some great photos. They cost $10 each and can be found here. I have the last three, Icefields Parkway, Jasper and Banff.

    Really a nice composition and lovely colors. Not bad for a roadside stop that you can't even recall

    I agree with Mike regarding cropping a bit of the sky and maybe just a strip off the bottom also to render a pano.

    Thanks all for your kind comments. Dave, Two Jack Lake it is. As soon as I read your post, it reminded me. How can you forget a name like that ? Mike/Dan - do you know, I have never spotted that spot of red before and your right it should go. Not sure about the crop though. I wouldn't like to lose the base of the tree at the bottom Dan and as for the sky, it's true that a crop from the top would work and even move the horizon further from the centre line but I quite like the feeling of space. To me, living in a relatively crowded country, that's what the Rockies were all about.
