Rain and Shine - Banff National Park, Alberta

Bow River, Banff National Park, Banff, Alberta

Near the end of Jeff Clow's photo tour to Banff, he asked me if there was anywhere that I wanted to shoot that I hadn't on this trip, My answer may have surprised him, as I mentioned that I wanted to shoot Bow Falls from town. It was a pretty dreary afternoon and there were occasional raindrops. After parking and checking out the falls themselves, I knew that it wouldn't turn out the way I wanted (I took a couple of shots anyway). I turned away from the falls and noticed that, around where the Bow River turns a curve, there was some sun shining on the mountains in the distance. I wanted the river to be a bit smooth and not show the raindrops in the river so I popped on a ND filter. I think it came out exactly how I wanted it to.
