Precious waterfalls as Sunwapta and Takakkaw, glaciers, rivers, creeks… All with the stunning background of the amazing Rocky Mountains, with peaks of up to more than 12,000 feet high around us. No doubt, this will be the ideal scenery to get extraordinary photographs, in an area that will allow us to fully enjoy of the landscapes, having the perfect chance to express our creativity in fabulous images.
To get the best possible pictures, we will wake up early every morning, so we can get to our planned location before sunrise. That way we’ll have more chances to capture the magical light in case we have it. At the same time, we will be also out to get the sunset and the last lights of the day. We will always be searching for the best possible lights and the most magical moments. Although this will be tiring, it will allow us to get more great and unique images.
We will have also free time some of the days during the trip, so we all can rest enough to continue enjoying and making the best from the trip. Often, this free time periods will take place before or after lunchtime.
The moment chosen for this Canadian Rockies Photo Tour will has several benefits for landscape photography. On these dates, we will have some snow, which will add even more magic to these incredible locations. Do you imagine how beautiful will Emerald or Peyto Lakes will be with a great snow around them?
Furthermore, we will be doing some night photography sessions. It’s also possible we could even see the aurora borealis or Northern Lights, so we will be checking the forecasts, trying to get the opportunity to photograph this incredible Nature phenomenon in this Canadian Rockies Photo Tour. Apart from this, the area of Canada where we will be staying is known for its low light pollution levels. This will be really helpful to capture the Northern Lights.
By other hand, we will also probably spot some of the wildlife of the area. This include elks, deer, bighorn sheep, moose, or even black and grizzly bears or wolves. We may spot any of those species almost everywhere, so we’ll have our eyes and cameras ready!
