During our time we drive along Route 11 and travel onto the Kooteny Plains for a vey different experience of The Canadian Rockies. These plains are a vast open space through which the Saskatchewan River runs. This area is home to many thousands of Aspen stands and at this time of year they will be a golden yellow. Once again, the Saskatchewan River is a beautiful glacial turquoise colour that leads to Abraham Lake and the plains are surrounded by a series of 10,000 ft mountains. No visit to Banff National Park would be complete without photographing the landscapes surrounding Aspen-filled Bow Valley Parkway with staggering views towards Castle Mountain and a visit to Johnston Canyon cut deep by glacial melt waters. Late in the day as the sun dips down we will explore the banks of Vermillion Lakes and look across to Sundance Peak.
We travel east to Yoho National Park and enter British Columbia and experience the mighty Takakkaw Falls that cascade 850ft into the river below and make our way to the tranquillity of Emerald Lake which certainly lives up to its name! Also whilst we are in British Columbia we take Highway 93 into the vast open space of Kooteney National park visiting Marble Canyon and the open plains to Vermillion River and Simpson River.
If you are a landscape photographer with a love for the great open spaces and the wilderness then this workshop is the trip for you. From the moment you meet at Calgary Airport and head east the landscape open up above and around you with an awe-inspiring view around every corner! Throughout your time in The Canadian Rockies you will have Paul Gallagher on hand to offer you 1 to 1 tuition so that you make the very best of every moment in this beautiful country and take home with you images that capture your time there.
