Bow Lake Reflection

Bow Lake, Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

The Icefields Parkway in Alberta, Canada is one of the most breathtaking drives that a landscape photographer (and others) can take. From the world famous Banff National Park in the south, the parkway spans 140 miles to the less famous, yet equally beautiful, Jasper National Park. Lakes, mountains, waterfalls, glaciers and wildlife can be spotted along the full length. 

I have been there twice, and am looking forward to going back there in June. It is hard to pick a favorite site (there are many), but in the top five has to be Bow Lake. Laying right along the parkway, it is an easy lake to spot, with rugged mountains as a backdrop. This particular composition is from the south end of the lake, and, if you look closely, you can see the Num Ti Jah Lodge on the opposite shore.
