Waterfowl Magic - Banff National Park, Alberta

Being one of the last photographers home from a trip to Banff National Park, I am a bit behind everyone else's posts. I must say that their work so far is stellar and that I have the great benefit of shooting with excellent photographers that I also call friends. I will try to post different compositions so as not to repeat their work. I believe that this photograph of Waterfowl Lake qualifies as that. In fact, on my previous visits to this pristine lake before 2016, I had never shot from the southern end of the lake. Back then, after shooting the scene from the Icefields Parkway, I spotted something red at the far end of the lake. I decided to check out what it was and started the long walk to the end of the lake. Turns out that the red was another photographer who was just leaving. She was kind enough to show me the trail down to where she had been. When I got to the end, I stood and looked at this exact view. This spot is, in my opinion, the best place to shoot Mount Chephren and also get the peaks to the north in the composition. I told my fellow photographers that it was worth the walk. Several of us headed down to this spot and worked the shoreline looking north.
