Tranquility on Two Jack Lake - Banff National Park, Alberta

Persistence is sometimes a requirement in photography. Many times the weather doesn't cooperate when you want a certain subject, and it requires you to revisit the location. That works out well if you live close by, but when you live thousands of miles away, not so much. Last June, I wanted to get a sunrise shot at Two Jack Lake with Mount Rundle reflected in it. I think we visited it every morning, hoping to get "the" shot. On my last morning in Banff, I hopped in my car to head up to Jasper National Park for a few days before flying home. On a whim, I took a detour to Two Jack Lake and this was what was waiting for me. Perseverance and determination does pay off.
