Along with Yosemite, The Canadian Rockies are often found on the 'Bucket List' of many landscape photographers and that is why we at Aspect2i have designed a workshop that will take you to some of the most breath taking places this area has to offer. We will be based in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in the picturesque Lake Louise Village a short drive away from two of the most famous lakes, Lake Louise and Moraine Lake in Banff National Park.
To give you an idea of the sheer scale of this place, Banff National Park alone covers an area of over 6,600 square Kilometres and on this workshop we will be visiting three adjoining National Parks, Banff, Yoho and Kooteney.
The variety of landscape photography opportunities are vast and we will be spending plenty of time visiting the area that the world famous Icefields Parkway travels through and visiting Herbert Lake, Bow Lake and stand on the banks of Waterfowl Lakes looking up at the snow capped mountains of White Pyramid and Howes Peak. We will take the mountain pass to the top of Bow Summit, and from here, we take an easily short walk to the viewpoint overlooking the staggeringly beautiful turquoise waters of Petyo Lake nestled beneath the summit of Carldron Peak.
During our time we drive along Route 11 and travel onto the Kooteny Plains for a vey different experience of The Canadian Rockies. These plains are a vast open space through which the Saskatchewan River runs. This area is home to many thousands of Aspen stands and at this time of year they will be a golden yellow. Once again, the Saskatchewan River is a beautiful glacial turquoise colour that leads to Abraham Lake and the plains are surrounded by a series of 10,000 ft mountains.
No visit to Banff National Park would be complete without photographing the landscapes surrounding Aspen-filled Bow Valley Parkway with staggering views towards Castle Mountain and a visit to Johnston Canyon cut deep by glacial melt waters. Late in the day as the sun dips down we will explore the banks of Vermillion Lakes and look across to Sundance Peak.
We travel east to Yoho National Park and enter British Columbia and experience the mighty Takakkaw Falls that cascade 850ft into the river below and make our way to the tranquillity of Emerald Lake which certainly lives up to its name! Also whilst we are in British Columbia we take Highway 93 into the vast open space of Kooteney National park visiting Marble Canyon and the open plains to Vermillion River and Simpson River.
Throughout your time in The Canadian Rockies you will have Paul Gallagher on hand to offer you 1 to 1 tuition so that you make the very best of every moment in this beautiful country and take home with you images that capture your time there.
