There are a lot of amazing views in Banff National Park, some far from town, and others very close to town. In the 6 days that we were in Banff we explored as much as we could, but for the most part, a big snow storm confined us to the vacinity near town.
After a snow storm dumped over a foot of snow in the area we tried to find as many intimate snowy scenes as we could. Within the town of Banff lies the Bow Falls, a small cascade of waterfalls jut outside of downtown. It seems everyone had the idea of trying to see the waterfalls when everything was covered in snow because we had to brave a traffic jam and a bunch of poor drivers to get here.
While the waterfall wasn't all that exciting, we were captivated by the bumps: the snow covered rocks along the river bank. I threw on the long lens and tried to capture something intimate, drawing the eye in with the shapes and patterns of the rocks.
