Natural landscapes: the peace of winter silence
LOUISE CREEK, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
To look at this scene, you’d never for a moment think that spring is just five days away. This looks more like January, but that’s how it goes in the Canadian Rockies, especially at higher altitudes where winter doesn’t really start to leave for another month.
I liked the stillness of this scene and the soft lines of the open water. There was pretty much no colour here, so it was an easy decision to show you the more dramatic black-and-white view.

The lines in this photo are absolutely stunning, Frank. I so love that curvaceous black water in the midst of this snowy scene.
