Visit Waterton this summer for some great landscape photography

Leave a comment

If you want to get off the beaten path a bit and try photographing landscapes in the Canadian Rockies that are not in Banff, Jasper, Yoho, or Kootenay, then drive south for three hours and take in the wonderful vistas of Waterton Lakes National Park, part of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.

The park is open year-round, but it’s in the middle of summer when the landscape photography really shines.  The park is relatively small, so schedule 2-3 days for your photography before moving on to either Glacier National Park in the U.S. or back to the Banff-Jasper area.

My personal favourite area in the park is the main park entrance road from the park gates to the Town of Waterton.  There are literally tens of great landscape photography locations along this short stretch of road, providing everything from prairie scenics to grand mountain vistas.
