The Weekly Photo – March 21, 2011

Here are three photos all taken on the same day on a quick trip from Cochrane to Jasper, Alberta. I needed to get the GPS coordinates for my new eBook on the Icefields Parkway in Winter and so had only a short time to snap some images. It was not a big light day but the mountains always reveal some lovely images if we are open to seeing and know where to look. Plus it was wonderful to be out of the office and in the mountains! For short road trips and hikes I almost always take my Rebel kit with three Sigma lenses (an 8-16mm, a 17-50mm and a 70-200mm lens).

    Darwin,
    Last week I purchased your new Winter Guide to the Icefield Highway, first class, congratulations!!
    So I immediately took off on a “Quick Trip”, Millarville – Jasper.
    When I went by the Columbia Icefield, I noticed the same Blue patch that you show in above photo. Do you have any idea what it is? perhaps a crevass?
    I did not stop to take a shot, the weather was poor and the priority was to get to Jasper.
