This is Vimy Ridge In Wateron Glacier National Park Located on the Canadian Side in Southern Alberta.
This National Park is a World Heritage Site and is also dedicated as Waterton International Peace Park
I have been told that this shot is rarely captured, due to the frequency of the winds around this area.

My Aunt and My Grandmother have tried for years and never had the opportunity to capture this Mountain and its mirrored image before and they live here.
I have searched hundreds of Pictures and have seen only one single Mirrored Image of this Mountain on the Internet there has to be more I’m sure. I have been back several times to take more shots but the water was too choppy, as the winds are almost always blowing, I was Extremely fortunate to have captured this shot.

    Wow ! one of those rare shots that would’nt matter which way you turned it it would still look the same ! beautifully done Jas and great colours

  • ;O) Thanks True
    I did not quite nail it as I was fully equipped with the understanding but the next time the wind is calm and the mountain is reflecting I will be sure to get the shot, and then try some new inspirations Thank you once again Trudi ;O)

    this is a stunning photo, so it’s in Waterton NP? Thought it looked familiar :-))

  • Oh!? You have been there, wow isn’t it unforgettable?!! I would have said unforgivable but now that I live in the neighborhood (So to speak) I can get out there a bit more easily. I really appreciate your comments.

    Excellent work…… hey all my pictures are stopping the car and just snapping away, amazing what you capture…. Rob J :)
    Check out my lizard in my art work… I just held the camera under the stairs and there he was…

  • LOL That is Hilarious hey thanks for sharing the like mindedness I have put the brakes on shooting from the car, I now at least stop and get out to Compose and Click, and I have set some new goals that actually involves me going for a hike away from the car LOL and since then I have decided to stick to the fact that I need to be more active when I get the opportunity LOL However if I’m driving like others I’m sure one hand on the wheel and the other well is almost a camera LOL
    Thanks Robert :O)

    This deserves a title …but not a trite one.

  • Thanks Caroline, yes you are right, I have left it as Temporarily untitled in hopes of suggestions that may be befitting of even help to inspire a title.
    Thank you Caroline ;O)
