The Canadian Landscape Contest – Marion Faria

This photograph was taken last October at the Mistaya Canyon in Banff National Park. The landscape absolutely took my breath away. It was worth the long wait for the clouds to clear a little to expose the mountain in the background; this image would have suffered without the presence of that mountain. I have never felt anything such as the awe inspired by the Canadian Rockies; there was always incredible beauty and majesty in every direction…this area in particular seemed very mystical.
