My family and I took a trip out to Lake Louise this past weekend. The weather was a little spotty and strange. One moment it would be raining, the next sunny and next again sun and rain! It never started pouring really hard, so that was nice. I spotted this canoe with a large Canadian flag on it and shot this photo. I wish the flag was a little more straight, but I guess like this it shows a little more realism. Anyhow, I thought the canoe and flag made for a nice foreground to the beautiful landscape in the back.
The Instagram picture is of my son shooting a photo on this hike we did. I took that picture with my iPhone and I really like how it turned out. Pretty easy to get a good shot out there I guess :).
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
BRAVO!! Fantastic composition!
Thank you very much! 🙂
Future photographer! What I like about the canoe shot is the fact that you can see what direction the wind was blowing. As an avid outdoors person, I can feel their pain at the fact the wind is blowing against them, we would never know that if it wasn’t for the flag. 🙂 What a beautiful area.
Thank you! Yes it is very beautiful around there for sure :).
Both lovely captures from Lake Louise, as you say – can’t get bad shots in such a stunning location. Perfect timing to capture the Canadian flag as well:)
Thank you very much! 🙂
Lake Louise is one of my favorite places! I love that little hike up to the teahouse. I love your blog, too, Rob. I just nominated you for one of those blogger awards. Just thought you should know. 🙂 https://madcapchristianscientist.com/2016/07/26/blogger-recognition-award/
Ah thank you very much! That is so nice of you! I love your blog too! It’s always nice to stop by your blog and see some old familiar places 🙂
As for the Tea House, I never made it to the top because I didn’t have enough water on me haha. I’ll make it up next time :).
Rob, as always your work is fabulous. I really enjoyed my time here today… So many great shots.. Blue & Red Bridge …. Landscape in the Night …. The Bull in the city shot…. Melissa & her kids! Everything I saw today is A+
Your shot of your son shooting landscape is stellar. The Canadian flag is perfect in your stunning lake shot! LOL! Looks like you’re having a great summer. Take care! _Resa
Thank you so much Resa! Summer has been good to us for sure. Sorry for the slow reply, we were just down in Montana. Anyhow, I hope everything is going good for you too!
No sorry… just joy that you are enjoying life! Things are wonderful here.
