Photographer's Note

This is Bow Lake, and I'm not sure of the name of the mountain, but I think it's Crowfoot Mountain. Taken just after sunrise, when the lake is calm and the reflection is still good. Later in the day the wind tends to kick up and destroy the reflections. This was taken near the Num-ti-Jah Lodge. As usual, there are hordes of people near the parking lot, and if you walk even a minute away then there are very few people (a sad commentary on our society). It's even more sad at a place like Banff, because there are such gorgeous trails, for all levels of ability. Anyways, I like this shot because of the impression of size that it conveys. Actually, in real life the mountain looks even bigger, and this was taken with a 12mm focal length.
