On our visit to Banff National Park on our holiday in Canada this year, we made a hiking trip from Lake Minnewanka up to Stewart Canyon.
I already posted another picture wich I shot standing on the Cascade River Bridge. This one I took on that same bridge, only this is the view of the other side. Both sides looked beautiful to me, and they both still look different.

Here's a little background information on Stewart Canyon, wich I found on the internet:

Named for George Stewart, first superintendent of Canada’s first national park, Stewart Canyon was one of Lake Minnewanka’s main attractions in Banff’s early days. Much of Stewart Canyon has lain under water since Lake Minnewanka was dammed, raising the level of the lake by 25 metres. Stewart Canyon is shallow compared to Johnston’s Canyon or even Sundance Canyon. The main attraction today is the Cascade River. The trail is level for 1.6 km to the canyon at the Cascade River bridge. After crossing the bridge, the Stewart Canyon Trail separates from the Lake Minnewanka Trail and continues up the Cascade River to km 2.8.

Hello Nel,
You have some fine and educational images from the Canadian mountain landscapes!
I notice the fine fir forest here, but probably no logging here since this is a National Park...
Well composed presentation, good colours and fine details!

Hello Nelly,
This park seems so interesting but I never had the chance to go there so far. I like this POV which is extraordinary as this picture looks like it was taken from the water. Nice natural colors and DOF. Well seen and well done. Thanks,

Nice POV and great composition. I never managed to get to Lake Minnewanka and Stewert Canyon so it is lovely to see



Hoi Nel,
Ik kan mij die andere foto nog goed herinneren. Vooral hoe diep het water door de rotsen heeft gesneden. De ruigheid van dit stuk natuur springt er van af. Ook vind ik het erg mooi hoe je tussen de bomen een stuk van het meer ziet. Wel kan de foto meer contrast gebruiken, en wat jammer van de belichting in de lucht.

:) morgen
