Icefields Parkway - Banff National Park, Alberta

I have been lucky enough to have visited Banff three out of the last four years. Banff is one of, if not the best, location that I have ever visited. There are so many absolutely great locations to experience, let alone photograph. If you asked me what my favorite location is, I would probably answer “the last one I visited”. One thing is for sure though, the road connecting Banff National Park to Jasper National park is always the star of any trip to the Canadian Rockies. The Icefields Parkway is a 143 mile drive and it has so many sights and stops along the way that it is impossible to drive straight through without stopping. From towering mountains on either side of the road to numerous pristine mountain lakes to glaciers to amazing wildlife, the Icefields Parkway has it all. Whenever you see a best drives in the world list, it is almost always in the top five. One of my favorite compositions is the “road shot” that usually acts as a leading line to an amazing subject, in this case Crowfoot Glacier and Mountain.
