The 93

I’m completely spoiled living where I do. The Rocky Mountains are only an hour and a half away, and my inlaws have a cabin in Invermere, BC which is just outside Kootenay National Park. I think I’ve taken my proximity to such beauty for granted in the past, so this summer I’ve decided to try to spend as much time as possible photographing this amazing natural beauty.

I spent the last three days at the cabin in Invermere, and spent a good deal of time shooting some of the popular stops along Highway 93 which runs through Kootenay National Park. Before I get to any of those stops, I thought it would be appropriate to share a view from the side of this very picturesque highway.

Man, that is one gorgeous view. The only thing missing is a little Heath at the top, proudly standing with a flag and chanting he is king of the mountain!

Geez Heath, rub it in. Love the sky in this.

Wow! So sharp and the image feels crisp. Love the contrast between the trees and the snow covered peaks. Just great man.

BC is gorgeous, I love going there and this image certainly does it justice. Great stuff!

Spoiled indeed! Must be awesome to live near such photographic scenery!

Beautiful shot Heath. You are spoiled living there. I am very jealous! I am roughly the same distance from the Smoky Mountains and even though the mountains themselves aren’t as picturesque as the Rockies, I try to venture there as much as possible and shoot photos.

I think spoiled is undercutting it a bit Heath – thats some great stuff!

Those trees are awesome, such a gorgeous landscape!

Beautiful Rockies you have up north in BC. Ours are too shabby either in Colorado. 😉 Thanks for sharing the lovely photo.

sweet shot dude – you’ve got some awesome landscape going on around there. I’ll look forward to more as you spend more time up there.

This is wonderful Heath!

Brian Furbush - May 24, 2011 - 8:18 pm

That view is absolutely sick dude…a bit jealous of your trip out there 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the rest of the shots!
