Icefields Beauty - Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta

It has been a few weeks since I have posted due to a non-photographic personal trip to Pennsylvania and Virginia, but I have now returned home. I thought I would kick off with a photo of one of my favorite places in the world, Banff National Park. 

When I shot this photo, I had no illusions that it would be a masterpiece (and it is not). I was with Jeff Clow back in 2014 driving down the Icefields Parkway and we pulled over to take a few shots. It was around noon and the light was pretty bad. In fact, I remember not wanting to stop, but Jeff wanted to. As we shot this scene, I commented that my shots were never going to see the light of day. His response was that there was a good photo here. I replied that it was wishful thinking. A few months after we got home, he posted his version of this composition and I thought to myself that he was right (make you feel better that I put this in writing, Jeff?). I edited this version shortly after and simply forgot about it. I came across this recently and realized that, although it is not a masterpiece, it still is pretty good, so here it is. One thing to note--if I were shooting film, I would have never even shot this scene, but since digital is "free", why not?
