Waterfowl Lakes

Spent almost a full day at Waterfowl Lake as we set up tents right beside the view you see below. It was a day with all kinds of weather. Here are a few shots under the different conditions of the same day!

First one is a long exposure shot of sunset clouds movement with a close up of Mt. Chephren

River in the Sky vs. River on Earth

Which do you like better? The one in the Sky? Or the one on mother earth?

Taken near the Columbia Icefield Campground in Jasper National Park, Alberta. Stayed at the Columbia Icefield Campsite on one of the night in my trip last month to the Canadian Rockies. Was decided to sleep early that night as the night skies was filled with clouds as I went to bed. Woke up around 1:30AM and saw the sky was clear. So I got up and head out to the little bridge near the campsite and took a few shots. But the clear skies didn’t last very long. After about 15-20 minutes of shooting. Clouds fill up half of the sky again! Which is also great!! Cause I can go back to catch some more sleep!! :)

Milky way above Hilda Peak with river running below!! Hope you enjoy it!

The Bench View

I called it “The Bench View” because I was thinking of “The Tunnel View” when entering Yosemite Valley. It’s a place where everyone will stop and take a shot from here.
I was taking my time relaxing and enjoying the beautiful night skies at this starting point of the Lake O’Hara Circuit Trail. I was surprised I couldn’t find a shot of the night skies taken from this very original spot of Lake O’Hara with the lodge in front, Yukness Mountain in the middle, Mt Schaffer on the right side with Mt Biddle peaking behind it. Crescent moon lit up the glacier on Glacier Peak and half of Mt Huber on the left.
I was very excited with the condition on this beautiful night. Gorgeous mountains lit up by the crescent moon right behind. And the moon lights have to be just enough to lit up the mountain and also dim enough allowing to capture the milky way at the same time. And I’m not kidding, I’ve been looking for this conditions for almost 2 years. As there are only a few nights in every month that can shot under this conditions.
