Castle Mountain is in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada, near the south end. Because it’s separated a little from the main range of the Rocky Mountains, it’s quite prominent and stands out majestically over the surrounding forest.Most of my photos of it have been in the winter but this time I managed to be there in the early Fall, and it has quite a different aspect. It was early evening and I was lucky enough to catch the low sunlight.

    Beautiful work, George! What a magnificent scene!

  • Greatly appreciated Mike! I have to thank Sean Jansen for telling me about a different road to take, it got me much closer to the mountain and a much different perspective than any that I’d seen before.

    George this is just an outrageously beautiful picture! The colors and textures are perfect.. A FAVE at first sight :>)) Leslie

  • You’re both kind and encouraging Leslie, and I appreciate both! I had my doubts that I’d get a good shot that evening, but after some hiking I found the right spot :)
    Thanks for the fave as well!
