After taking a student to Vermillion Lakes for a sunset shoot last week (see previous post) I decided to try a different venue for the next lesson. This time I headed 100km south of Banff to Lower Kananaskis Lake where I have repeatedly found great sunsets in the wintertime. Thankfully the predictions were correct this time and high cloud brought the perfect 'alpenglow' effect to the towering summits of the Opal Range on the east side of the lake.
It is such a beautiful location with an almost endless supply of potential images. The frozen lake in winter, reflections in spring/summer and incredible colour in autumn. The Kananaskis Lakes area is my favourite place in Canada, not just for it's endless possibilities photographically but because it's just a wonderful place to be and as I tell everyone; if you take the time to drive to Kananaskis Lakes you will be rewarded for your efforts, on this day my reward was stunning.
