Moraine Lake

I’m sure you’ve heard of how beautiful Moraine Lake is. Well for my first time up to the lake I decided to go in early winter after a fresh heavy snow, just to make things more interesting.

This had to be one of the most miserably long hikes I have ever done but with that and the fact that the weather hide the amazing views from me, I have no regrets about this epic trip!

After the 12km hike I’ll be the first to admit I didn’t have the energy to go search for an amazing shot. So I found this spot quickly and took the best shot I could. It definitely caught the mod I want to convey!

I saw this spot on the way and made sure to stop on the way back. Much like the last image I was pretty tired and didn’t put in the effort this spot deserved but I think the image turned out fairly well.

I’ve discovered a new area!

Actually I didn’t, but I didn’t know how amazing this area was and I definitely want to get back here in warmer weather.

This hike was a prime example of over estimating what I could do, I thought I would be able to make it to the Skoki Mountain Lodge but the snow slowed me down a lot and I only made it to the Halfway Hut. Either way this little hut is pretty cool and would have made for a good hiding spot if nasty weather came in.

This shot was pure luck, I spent most of the day in trees with almost no views then on the way out I noticed a little vantage point where I could get some elevation with a view above the trees.

I really like this shot because it was taken in a super popular location but its not cliché. This side of Lake Louise is rarely shown and I thought the soft curve of the mountain made for a nice composition.

This single strip of red light is what make this image so cool to me, I was feeling disappointed with sunset and ready to pack up and leave when the light caught this cloud just right. It’s kind of weird how the sunset light only got caught by this single cloud.

Mere moments later the sky popped with this beautiful fiery orange along the peaks.
