Canadian Rockies VII

Waterfowl Night

Ooops..! Almost forgot….. my trips will always come back with some time lapse video. And this little shorts is combined with video from different trips over the last few years to the Canadian Rockies under my tight budget. 🙂
The amount of time I stayed is only about 5 weeks in total. But I did visited in different season and capture a little taste of most season.

Canadian Rockies VI

Kananaskis Pano

After a long ride with the tow truck driver back to Lethbridge. I was settled very quickly with the repair shop and rental car. All I need is to wait for my car to be fix. I said to myself, there’s nothing I can do and let’s just enjoy the trip. So I went to another part of the Rockies which is not as popular as Banff or Jasper National Park. I am talking about Peter Lougheed Provincial Park just south of Canmore

Night Ride

Kananaskis Galaxy

After few days of waiting, the insurance company contacted me and told me they will not fix my car. So I ended up droves the rental car that was from Lethbridge back to Vancouver. And to end all my trips to the Rockies in 2016, I did another short trip with my friend. Basically drove all the way from Vancouver to Jasper and then down south to Highway 3 back to Vancouver in 3 days….! HA!! here are some of the short from that trip

Fall is here

Canadian Rockies V

It have been many attempt trying to capture some good morning lights at Moraine Lake. Many times waited for the sunrise after shooting at the lake at night. And that finally paid off all those morning that didn’t goes as plan.

The Golden Morning

Another part of the Canadian Rockies that I’ve been willing to visit is the Waterton Lakes National Park by the US Border. And I finally make my trip there. But before getting to Waterton Lakes National Park, there is another gem along Highway 3. The Lundbreck Falls is a great place for a stop or even camp for the night!

 

And I’ve taken many photos just along the way like this one

Borderline

And this is a great lookout point where I took this panorama shot in the afternoon

After entering Waterton Lakes National Park, I drove around try to find location for a astro time lapse shot. And this is one of the frame from the time lapse sequence

Waterton Galaxy

Remember my little red car I love taking night photo with from one of my Canadian Rockies post? That photo was the last photo of her and her life was ended here by the lake. To make the story short, I hit a short cement pole damage the watercooler. After freaking out for few hours, I finally calm down and decided what I can do at the time on this long sleepless night…. SHOOT!!!

Here are some of the photos from that night and the next morning before I can call for a tow truck to drive 2 hours from Lethbridge…

Lights Before Dawn

Unforgettable Dawn

Reflective Vibration

And a short time lapse on this same location since I can’t really drive my car any more… There are still many photos I took from Waterton that just sitting in the hard drive. I guess it is time to dig those out again!!

The story didn’t end there, want to know where to? Please check out the next chapter!! 🙂
