Castle Mountain, Banff National Park, Alberta,Canada. Standing quite aloof from the surrounding Rocky Mountain chain, Castle Mountain offers numerous aspects depending upon season, time of day and one’s willingness to venture off the road.
After getting some shots of the setting sun spotlighting the walls, I took some time to venture through the trees to get a better close-up of the upper heights.

  • Hi Maxy, many thanks. These are just some of the ramparts, the mountain is very massive. It’s all shown in the first one I ever posted on here, called “Castle in the Clouds”, if you’d like a better view. On Page 27 of my main profile page under “View all art” .
