Montagne Castle Chateau, Parc National Banff

Levez les yeux et se sentir petit dans le visage de Montagne Chateau du parc national Banff

La montagne Castle « Château » est la plus remarquable des façades verticales extrêmement large sur la route transcanadienne, situé dans le Parc National de Banff. La forme massive de la montagne avec ses détails délicats de roche calcaire et de dolomite rend cette montagne exclusive. Pendant le lever ou le coucher du soleil, ou avec une toile de fond d’un ciel bleu clair. La vue de la montagne apparaît beaucoup plus dramatique.

Cette photo a été prise dans l`autobus sur le chemin du retour à Lake Louise. Ma passion pour la photographie me permet d’apprécier encore plus ce lieu ou j `habite. Pour plus d’informations, veuillez communiquer avec Parcs Canada, ou tout centre de visiteurs dans les Rocheuses canadiennes.

Partageons la planète avec la même intention: une qualité de vie en bonne santé.

Castle Mountain, Banff National Park

Look Up and Feel Small in the Face of Castle Mountain in Banff National Park

Castle Mountain is one of the most outstanding mountains on the Trans-Canada highway in Banff National Park. The massive shape of the mountain with its delicate detail of limestone and dolomite rock makes this mountain exclusive. The vertical and extremely wide face of Castle Mountain seems that much more dramatic during sunset, sunrise or with a backdrop of a bright blue sky.

This picture was taken from the bus while on my way back to Lake Louise, where there are many hiking, rafting and sightseeing opportunities available. My passion for photography helps me appreciate even more this place I call home.

Let us protect the planet together with the same intention: a healthy quality of life.

Incroyable Mont Assiniboine: Le grand écart sur ​​la Colombie-Britannique-frontière de l’Alberta

Randonnée pédestre à la base du Mont Assiniboine était un rêve pour moi. Le sentier des permis beaucoup de belles vues. Il y a une authentique cabane située à la base de la montagne qui a été difficile à atteindre. Le gain d’altitude n’est pas un facteur, mais c’est une longue randonnée en. Si vous vous sentez comme vous voulez visiter le lieu sans aucun effort physique, vous pouvez voler en par hélicoptère puis randonnée autour du pic.

J’appelle cette image particulière de lumière du matin. Avec le lac de glacier tellement calm et le ciel tellement coloré, j’ai vraiment apprécié mon temps plongé dans ce paysage fantastique à la base du Mont Assiniboine. Ce paradis fait partie d’un trésor de l’UNESCO.

Incredible Mount Assiniboine: The Great Divide on the British Columbia-Alberta border.

Hiking to the base of Mount Assiniboine was a dream for me. The trail up allowed many beautiful views. There is an authentic cabin located at the base of the mountain which was a challenge to reach. The elevation gain is not much of a factor but it is a long hike in. If you feel like you want to visit the place without any physical stress, you can fly in by helicopter and then hike around the peak. If you’re still stressed out, you might want to try rafting on the Kicking Horse River.

I call this particular picture Morning Light. With the glacier lake so calm and the sky so colourful, I really immersed myself in this fantastic landscape at the base of Mount Assiniboine. This paradise forms a part of an UNESCO treasure.

The Canadian Rockies inspires freedom and a simple life.

le lac Spray, Kananaskis Country

Destination: Canmore, l’Alberta

Voici le lac Spray tôt le matin. Un décor magique recouvert d`un sommet blanc à distance. Ce paysage est parcouru par un mystérieux nuage qui reflète sur l’eau. Depuis 1911, le barrage au lac Spray est un important producteur d’énergie électrique. Le réservoir est également utilisé pour des activités récréatives telles que la pêche.

À mon avis, le lac Spray est un endroit idéal pour se détendre et profiter de la vue. Depuis mon déménagement à Banff en 2002, ma passion de la découverte des Rocheuses canadiennes augmente sans cesse. Je suis persuadée que vous admirerez la beauté du paysage lorsque vous voyagerez dans cette région sauvage du Canada.

Protégeons la planète et de profiter de la vie!!!!

The dam at Spray Lake has been an important producer of electrical power since 1911. The reservoir is also used for recreational activities such as fishing.

Lever du soleil à Banff, le parc national de Banff

Golf matin à Banff, en Alberta

C’était une fois, une expérience de vie dans les Rocheuses canadiennes. Il s’agit d’un lever de soleil parfait au Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course. Les couleurs rouges et jaunes créent comme un feu dans le ciel. Chaque fois que je suis témoin d’un tel spectacle, je suis inspirée par mère Nature.

J’aimerais écrire un peu sur le Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course. C’est un endroit merveilleux pour jouer au golf tout en étant entouré de paysages incroyables. Jouer sur ce particulier terrain de golf, on a la possibilité de rencontrer la vie sauvage comme les wapitis, les coyotes, ours et autres petits mammifères. Les écureuils peuvent constituer un problème, comme ils sont connus pour voler des collations dans les voiturettes de golf par la naiveté des golfeurs !

Alors si vous jouez au golf dans les Rocheuses canadiennes veuillez éviter de nourrir les animaux.

Banff Golf Sunrise, Banff National Park

Morning Golfing in Banff, Alberta

This was a once in a lifetime experience in the Canadian Rockies. This is a perfect sunrise at Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course. The strong red and yellow colours form to create a fire in the sky. Every time I witness such a spectacle I am inspired by Mother Nature.

The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course is a wonderful place to play golf while being surrounded by great, yet at times distracting, landscape. While golfing on this course one has the possibility to encounter wild life such as elk, coyotes, bears, and other small mammals. The squirrels can be a concern as they are known to steal snacks from the golf carts by unsuspecting golfers! The Fairmont Banff is not the only golf course in the Canadian Rockies, so you might want to check out these other Banff golfing packages to find a location that is closest to your vacation destination. You could also pair your golfing trip with a whitewater rafting trip in Banff.

While golfing in the Canadian Rockies please avoid feeding the animals.
