Canadian Road Trip

This is a photo from last year while on a mini road trip from Calgary to Banff in Canada. Barely a road trip, it took only about 1.5 hours to drive, but there was just so much to see along the way that it felt like a road trip. Driving in Australia you almost never see scenery like this…a stunning backdrop of snow capped mountains, and a row of Christmas trees (I know that’s not their real name), behind these cute little highway arches. It took me a few tries to get this photo right, sitting in the passenger seat, camera pointed out the front window while my husband drove. Not all the bridges had a backdrop of mountains and I had to get the distance just right before the mountains were obscured behind the bridge. Not bad for highway speed photography!

      1. No, I have only been there once. I remember it when my family and I went through when I was a child and I have never forgotten it. We wanted to stop and camp at Lake Louise but the line of vehicles trying to get in was very, very long and we had to by-pass it and camp somewhere else. I can’t wait to see more of your photos 🙂

    1. Hi Lindy, so great that you get to relive your road trip! I hope my photo added to your excitement. I’m sure the stunning scenery along the way will provide so much inspiration for your art as well.
