Photographer's Note

Welcome to the Rockies

I guess it is time for my first photo in my new North American series. Last week, my father and I flew to Calgary in Canada and drove from there in a couple of days to Vancouver. This took us through the Canadian Rockies, but we were pretty unlucky with the weather and it rained a lot, so there were not many opportunities to admire the scenery and take a lot of photos. We’ll be back in Calgary at the end of our trip, so maybe we will have some time to see more.

Anyway, this photo was taken at the viewpoint along the Trans-Canada Highway in Banff National Park. It offered a view of the of Castle Mountain (or Miistukskoowa in the local Algonquian language), which has got an elevation of 2,766 metres. There was just a bit of sunlight when I took this photo, so I guess I was lucky, although nature photography is not my specialty.
