Minnewanka

One of the stops the Chris’s and I made on the way back to Golden from Banff was at Lake Minnewanka. I vaguely remembered being brought to this amazing mountain lake when I was a child, but had no recollection of how stunning it was. We arrived a couple hours before sunset, and the light was pretty fantastic…especially on the mountainside featured in the image below.

I will be going back to Lake Minnewanka later this summer. For sure. The beauty is amazing, and we really only spent time on a very small portion of the shoreline…there’s so much left to explore, and I can’t wait.

Dude. This is absolutely epic. The pop of the green off the mountain in the distance is my favorite part.

Brilliant image Heath. I’ve been itching to get an ND filter. I think I’m going to have to make that my next purchase.
