Natural landscapes: railroad through the snow


This spectacular viewpoint, which brings together Hwy. 1A, the Bow River and the main rail line through Banff National Park, is named for photographer Nicholas Morant. He worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway and this viewpoint was such a favourite photo locale that it was named for him.
I kept the soaring peaks out of this photo so you can concentrate on the glorious snowy forests and almost feel the cold wintery atmosphere. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.
