The Canadian Rockies
The Canadian Rockies are one of the most amazing places on Earth, a paradise for landscape photography lovers. Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks include many incredible locations to capture extraordinary photographs. No matter what season of the year you visit. It is terrific from spring to autumn, and from summer to winter. Each season has something special in the Canadian Rockies.
This fascinating area is world famous for its stunning mountain range and its many spectacular lakes. Each of these lakes has its particular color, from deep blue to turquoise or emerald green. Some of the most famous lakes in the Rockies are Peyto, Louise, Moraine, Bow, Two Jack, Emerald, Pyramid or Maligne. The great variety of tones are a fantastic subject to photograph, and any landscape photographer dreams about visiting this particular area at least once.
These lakes often offer perfect reflections, especially before sunrise, and after sunset. As photographers, those moments bring us the ideal chance to get a great shot of the mountains and its reflection over any of these beautiful lakes.
Apart from pristine lakes and outstanding mountains and peaks. You can find precious waterfalls, as Takkakaw Falls, creeks, rivers, as the Bow or the Athabasca, impressive glaciers, some of them near the roads, as the Athabasca Glacier, caves, canyons, as Maligne or Johnston, everything surrounded by the mountains and beautiful forests.
There are hundreds of spectacular locations that you’ll love photographing. Truly a dream come true for all landscape and Nature photographers.
Apart from being a top destination for landscapes, the Canadian Rocky Mountains are a fantastic destination for wildlife. This area is home to many species, such as grizzly and brown bears, elks, deer, moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, coyotes, wolves.
Some of these animals are much easier to spot than others, but during a trip to the Rockies, you may be lucky to photograph several of these creatures, especially if you look at the right places and during the right times.
Having so many possibilities for photographers, both from the landscape and the wildlife photography point, the Canadian Rockies makes it for a perfect destination when you want to capture extraordinary images.
