Crowfoot Glacier

Winter is not complete without a few pictures of the Crowfoot Glacier, this year even in April the nights are like winter. My favourite season is winter. Now, no one gets upset at me. The bonus winter we're getting into the mountains is out of my control, all I can do is enjoy it. Even with lots of snow remaining in the valley, I have been out hiking as if it's spring like conditions. It was a few weeks back, I last got to see the Crowfoot Glacier, I was the only one out there as the sunlight started making contact with the mountain. I zoomed in with my camera, looking at the composition that would give me the best picture. There's something about the rock, snow and ice, it has a calm, peaceful effect, the way they work together to form nature's art.

Crowfoot Glacier

The first time I saw Crowfoot Glacier was over twenty years ago, since them it has lost some of its mass. The summer we have gone past was one of the warmest, many glacier are bit smaller. They have shrunk from the area they once covered and reduced in height. I still enjoy looking at it when I come across it, but one day it will be gone.

Crowfoot Glacier

Last year I had taken a similar picture of the same section of the Crowfoot Glacier, it was hard to pass the opportunity to take the same picture. But this time I had more light, which in turn made this picture little bit better in my eyes, I just liked the way the snow and the ice looked with the added light. Photography is an endless pursuit to get that  perfect picture, I'm not sure if I'll every get it, but the effort sure keeps me getting out there.

Until next moment,

Glacier on Mount Patterson

Was driving on 93 North, decided to stop and look at various glaciers that caught my interest. Around this time they look great with part of them covered with the fallen snow and standing out amount the mountains they are on. I zoomed in and would take pictures when I had a nice composition. This glacier was one of them, located on the side of Mount Patterson.

Crowfoot Glacier

While ascending the slopes across the valley from Crowfoot Mountain, I happened to looked back toward the Crowfoot Glacier. It looked like a large painting sitting on the side of the mountain, my eyes were attracted to the  colours of the rocks, the contrast between snow and ice and the rocks. Only thing I had to do was to decide what to include and what not to in the picture I took.

Angel Glacier

I was able to make the quick hike to the small lake below the over hanging Angel Glacier on Mount Edith Cavell, before the road was closed for the winter It was my first time being there, all I can say is I want to go there many more times, The mountains, glacier, lake with iceberg and more can produce endless possibilities for photo opportunities. I spent about an hour there before the rain asked me to leave, but not before I was able to capture few images.

Bow Glacier

It was early in the morning and I was behind the Bow Lake below the Bow Glacier Fall. Took some pictures, before deciding to sit back and eat while watching the water come down. Then I scrambled and hiked my way to the Bow Glacier Lake above the fall, beautiful view with cold wind coming over the glacier and lake. It was hot day, but the cold wind was causing about foot high waves on the lake and keeping the temperature down as well.  With the lack of clouds, decided just to take close up pictures of the glacier while three Harlequin ducks kept their distance from me on the lake. Hopefully it will not be another 12 years before I get up there again, just want to be there when the water is calm and happy clouds in the sky. Today I get to share one of the close up picture of the Bow Glacier.

Until next moment,
