Natural landscapes: simply epic grandeur

MALIGNE LAKE AND SPIRIT ISLAND, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA

Accessible only via a 14-kilometre boat ride, this sight is one of the most famous, and breathtaking, in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. My wife and I were blessed to visit on a glorious summer evening. If conditions are right, it’s hard to make a bad picture here. I like the colour version, but black-and-white instantly removes it from the realm of postcard shots. It also increases the drama of the evening lighting.
