Using my old D60 and a new Tamron 17-50mm lens, I didn't expect to get as great of shots as I did. There is so much beauty to be found in the Bow Valley and Banff area. It took much discipline to find a decent composition and then to work for the shot. With no people to direct, the onus was entirely on me to find the angle and make it work. The goal was not only to capture the tranquility of the area and its obvious depth of beauty - but also to find a unique look for my photographs. Something that wouldn't be a copy of the postcards in the gift stores around Banff.
Let me know what you think! Feedback is always welcome.
Regina SK houses the Training Depot for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The public are welcome to check out their evening "Sunset Parades". From the dog training demonstrations, to the very polished marching drills (the militant crunch of boots on asphalt), and the sounds of the marching band, its an awesome experience. Here are a few of my favourite shots:
