Castle In The Clouds by George Cousins

November 11,2006, driving through an early winter squall from Calgary and into Banff National Park, in the Rocky Mountains, Alberta, Canada. Caught sight of Castle Mountain and stopped to wait until the wind and clouds gave me the view I was looking for. Very cold, but I managed to get several that I liked. I think this one is the best.
The actual name of the mountain is “Castle Mountain” which seemed appropriate for the title.
