No Words

This is one of those shots that I had to get while up at the summit of Sulphur Mountain. Those lookout/binocular things are just too cool to pass up 🙂

While you get a bit of the view of valley in which the town of Banff sits in this shot, there is really no substitute for actually being there and seeing it for yourself. No words can describe how amazing it is to be on top this mountain looking down at such epic beauty.

That is one heck of a view!

Scott Frederick - June 16, 2011 - 7:18 am

That’s incredible. Thought that was Johnny #5 from short circuit up there! 🙂

Chris Nitz - June 16, 2011 - 7:18 am

What a gorgeous view. Love the dance of light across the valley.

I would LOVE to be there right now! This is why I love seeing others photogs work, because you could very easily just take a picture of the mountains and forget about the viewer (which I think adds to the picture). Great eye Heath.

Damn man, that is one amazing view. I love the composition with the viewfinder in the foreground, really gives it a sense of depth! This is breathtaking!

Jesse Pafundi - June 16, 2011 - 7:29 am

Love your title. Utter beauty and classic Heath composition. If you wanted to transport your viewers to this spot, you did well. Awesome.

Chris Frailey - June 16, 2011 - 7:34 am

Nice pov Heath. Feels like I’m there.

Jim Denham - June 16, 2011 - 7:53 am

Great view and very cool image!

Chris DeAngelis - June 16, 2011 - 8:07 am

Wow! Those Canadian viewers sure are high tech! Ours are a little more retro in the States 😉 Gorgeous shot Heath! I will be visiting this shot a few more times throughout the day 🙂

Wow what a view…great one heath!

Curt Fleenor - June 16, 2011 - 8:29 am

That’s just a breathtaking vantage point and those binoculars are the coolest design I’ve ever seen!

Mike K. - June 16, 2011 - 8:31 am

Haven’t been there for years. Great shot. Love the post work, or as I love to call it. Polishing your image.

Brian Furbush - June 16, 2011 - 8:44 am

Wow man – this is absolutely epic. You know how I feel separately about those lookout things and also about Banff…badass shot.

Chris Lazzery - June 16, 2011 - 8:44 am

Been waiting for this one, dude. I thought it was so cool how most of the valley was in shadow, and Banff was the only thing lit up. You captured that quite nicely here.

A.Barlow - June 16, 2011 - 8:45 am

wow man! Such a cool shot. Nice idea on the foreground subject.

Matty - June 16, 2011 - 8:53 am

Awesome one, Heath! I’ve been there before!

Rick Young - June 16, 2011 - 8:54 am

Fan-freaking-tastic! I love the landscape shots with the viewfinder in the foreground and the killer vista in the back. Well done.

Hans - June 16, 2011 - 9:09 am

Those binoculars are cool looking! I can’t wait to get up to Banff later this year. What a view!

Jason Hines - June 16, 2011 - 9:45 am

Awesome composition and such a beautiful scene!

Jerry Denham - June 16, 2011 - 9:55 am

Alright, now you’re just showing off and rubbing it in! What an absolutely incredible view and image. I’m very jealous of your surroundings Heath.

Rich Williams - June 16, 2011 - 10:33 am

It doesn’t get any better than this.

Toad Hollow Photography - June 16, 2011 - 11:32 am

We love the Jasper/Banff area, it’s my ol’ stompin’ grounds. Great image today Heath, you’ve really captured the pure essence of this most wonderful location!

chrisdmrf - June 16, 2011 - 12:08 pm

Stunning shot and processing. Words fail me (almost)

Jan Winther - June 16, 2011 - 1:23 pm

Super shot, Heath, what a fantastic view. I wish we had that kind of landscape here.

Meghan J. Ward - Writer - June 16, 2011 - 5:33 pm

Great shot, Heath. You’ll have to come back and get some shots from the top of Cascade, or some of the park’s backcountry areas sometime. Zoom in and you can see my house! 🙂 Great work.

Chrisdmrf - June 17, 2011 - 12:21 am

Commented on the fly by phone yesterday, now I’ve seen this in large just have to say the processing here is awesome, the bino’s look like molten metal, the wood rail has amazing texture and the mountains are awesome

Joey Bamburg - June 17, 2011 - 2:06 pm

What an amazing view! Awesome shot!

Bob Lussier - June 17, 2011 - 2:15 pm

This shot is absolutely spectacular. Great comp and great processing.

Jim Nix - June 20, 2011 - 4:39 pm

I have stood up there and the view is incredible, such a great shot here Heath, totally awesome and fabulous!!

[…] as much detail as I could. What I find very interesting (and I made this comment on Heath’s stunning shot) is the fact that Banff (that town down there) is the only thing really illuminated, while the rest […]

Late to the game – but WOW is this ever gorgeous. Nicely done
