Castle Mountain is in the Rocky Mountains about half way between Banff and Lake Louise. It is a very scenic spot that looks good in all sorts of light and weather conditions. I love to see it when it is being lit up from the side because the shadows in between each of the parapet like peaks falls into deep shadow and makes the mountain look even more rugged than normal.
We were passing by at just the right time the other day to enjoy the sunrise. It was a particularly beautiful thing when the Alpenglow dropped down the face of the mountain. I love the Rockies!
I have updated my Panoramic Image Collection with a couple of images that I’ve made recently. The image above is Castle Mountain as seen from the Bow Valley Parkway. Castle is located halfway between Banff and Lake Louise on the Bow Valley Parkway, and is a popular mountain for hiking and climbing. I really liked the way the wispy clouds partially covered the golden rocks of the mountain, and the brilliant blue sky in the background just gave it some extra oomph! As soon as I saw the mountain I knew I had to make a panoramic image.
The next one is another view of Mount Rundle as seen from Vermillion lakes. I have wanted to get some good sunrise or sunset images from this location for a long time and I’m really happy with what I got from my recent visit.
The images in the Panoramic gallery look really great printed big! I’ve printed a few of these at 12″ x 36″ and they look fantastic. Unfortunately the print service in my online store will only print as big as 12″ x 24″, so if you want something bigger please contact me directly and I will make a custom print to your specifications. Note that while most of my panoramics are sized in a 1:3 aspect ratio, some are only 1:2. Each one may need to be cropped differently when printed…
