Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

This scene was also taken from a boat on Maligne Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. The range of natural features is quite extensive. Heavy virgin forest at the lower levels, gradually becoming less and less as the slopes rise, until alpine meadows and mosses take over.Finally the mountain slopes become rock faces,some gradual, some showing much more of the forces which caused the upheaval of the sea beds millions of years ago. Finally the rough peaks of the Rocky Mountains with deep valleys and crevasses filled with a mixture of snow and hard ice. To complete the picture, storm clouds piled up on the peaks and the winds created wisps of blowing snow among the highest crags. As the boat progressed, the angle of view constantly changed, offering limitless images to be captured.
Yet we were enjoying a beautiful day,quite warm, on the pristine waters of the Lake, one of the most famous in Canada, and known the world over. I still think the wonders of the surrounding mountains go largely un-noticed by most visitors.

    Your country is very beautiful and you capture it perfectly!

  • Thanks again Tori.. I do love my country very much, and I try to capture as much of it’s beauty as time and budget allows. As a good friend of mine says, “one frame at a time” LOL!
