Canadian Rockies

Canadian Rockies II

So I should have continues updating some of the post from the Rockies Trips.

Bow Lights

No matter how many times you’ve been to Bow Lake. The beauty of it will never fail stopping you for a little while, or in some case a very very long time…

Athabasca Twilight

Athabasca Falls in Jasper National Park at twilight. The right time to shoot the waterfalls without the need of a ND filters! 🙂

Castle Highway

The ever changing weather in the Canadian Rockies were so unpredictable. But when the good lights show its beauty, you might just have to stop. Even on the side of Highway 1 beside Castle Mountain! And not to mention how many times you need to stop on the Icefield Parkway.

On The Road

And one of my favorite is Waterfowl Lake. Here are a few night shots from the night I stayed there.

Canadian Rockies I

Have to update on some of the images captured over the years since I was back to China back in 2015 and have left this site untouched until recently. Anyway, did a few trips to the Canadian Rockies including Banff, Jasper, and Waterton Lakes National Park. Here I would like to share some of them with you.

Arc Above O’Hara

Milky way above Lake O’Hara. The most iconic spot at this beautiful place. Moon was about to set behind me with the last bit of moon lights on Mount Huber and Glacier Peak in the middle. Aurora also decided to come out and play behind Wiwaxy Peak on the left towards the northern direction

Schaffer Galaxy

Milky way above Mount Schaffer at Lake O’Hara, Yoho National Park, British Columbia. The last night I stayed at Lake O’Hara and I left the Lake O’Hara circut trail night hike on the very last night at I knew I’ll be super tired after three full days of hiking to different peak within the area. And it was a great choice as I didn’t went far on this very last night and have to call it the end of the night only around 2am 🙂

Lake McArthur Sunset

It was the last sunset I stayed at Yoho National Park back in June 2015. I spent the afternoon with my friend at Lake McArthur and have the whole area all to ourself. It was a beautiful and peaceful evening.

An Unforgettable Night

A Night that I will never ever forget in my life. A lot of first time happened to me on this beautiful night. First time sleeping on top of a mountain without a tent, first time spending a night at 8000 feet above sea level, and first time watching aurora dancing all night right above my head. And of course it will have to combined with the first 2 conditions in order to have nothing between you and the night skies!! 🙂 And yes. I took another shot of this very same spot on the next morning and posted it a while ago already!! (If the composition looks familiar to you!!)

Hope you enjoy it!!
Have a great weekend!!
