Below are Carrie Bradley’s results from the Spring Photo Tour in the Canadian Rockies:

At Whitegoat Lakes, the snow covered Elliot Peak reigns. Mount Stelfox is reflected in gold.
ISO 100, 10mm, f/22, 1/6 sec. (Canon 10-22) lens, B+W polarizer, 2 stop hard ND grad (Hitech)
The vastness and ever changing area of the Columbia Icefields offers endless photographic opportunities.
ISO 100, 24mm, f/8.0, 1/8 sec. (Canon 24-105 f/4L lens), Singh Ray LB warming polarizer, 2 stop hard ND grad (Hitech)
A memorable late evening spent at Whirlpool Point and the North Saskatchewan River, Kootenay Plains.
ISO 100, 14mm, f/8.0 1/2 sec. (Canon 10-22 lens), B+W polarizer, 2 stop hard ND grad (Hitech)
Well worth the early rise for the 5:30 am sunrise at Windy Point on Abraham Lake!

Cline Canyon & Cline River, Bighorn Wildlands, was my favourite location. It included time to hike and explore an expansive canyon in complete solitude.
ISO 100, 65 mm, f/22, 1/5 sec. (Canon 24-105 f/4L lens), Singh Ray LB warming polarizer.
Darwin stepped into my composition but it was rewarding since he added a sense of scale and provided a focal interest. Here he is busy at work. As photographers we like to “trophy hunt” and take photos of sweeping landscapes. We must not forget the “intimate details”. Darwin is no doubt isolating the details of Nigel Creek here in Banff National Park.
