It doesn’t really look like an island from this angle, but that grove of trees on the rocky mound is the end of Spirit Island as seen from the water of Lake Maligne, in Jasper National Park, Alberta,Canada. It’s not a view that we’d seen anywhere in other photos, which was what we were trying to do: capture some views that were different.
It looked like the surrounding ranges of the Rocky Mountains were holding the island in a protective embrace, protecting it from the stormy weather up there on the high altitudes.
