One of my favourite Jasper photography spots for some great landscape photos each spring is along the Athabasca River just south of the Town of Jasper.
There are a number of great spots to set up and photograph from, but my personal favourite is 3 kilometers south of the Athabasca Falls turn-off on the side of Highway 93 (the Icefields Parkway) where you get a lovely open vista of Mount Fryatt at sunrise. You can expect some gorgeous alpenglow here about ten to twenty minutes after the sun first starts bathing the snow-clad peaks in light. Wander about the edge of the river and you’ll find all sorts of great landscape photography opportunities.
Stay tuned for more great Jasper photography tips in the coming weeks.
