Natural landscapes: the snowy mountainscape
WINTER IN THE BOW VALLEY, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
Morant’s Curve is a Canadian Rockies photo location made famous by the curving train tracks running through a breathtaking mountain valley. These peaks (anyone know their names? I couldn’t find out) are across the valley.
I was blessed to visit right after a significant snowfall – and before wind blew all the snow off the trees. This is truly an incredible place amidst the silence of a winter morning. I like the subtle colour version (you can see it here: https://bit.ly/SnowyMountainDawn), but knew it would make a dramatic black-and-white picture. Was I right?
