While traveling through Western Canada shooting dance competitions I took some time out to visit Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta. I left Calgary at 5:30AM in order to arrive in Banff for sunrise. I drove through Banff village and up towards Lake Louise. On the way back I drove around Lake Minnewanka and Vermillion Lakes. I took about 100 photographs and managed to get them down to five that to me most represent one of the world’s most beautiful scenic drives. Enjoy!

Looking both ways before crossing the tracks: Two elk on the outskirts of Banff village, Banff, Alberta.
Arriving at sunrise didn’t mean the sun was going to make an appearance on this day. Regardless, it made for some pretty vistas.
The SUV providing some scale.
