Photo of the Day – Stormy Jasper Valley – Jasper National Park, CanadaFirst, Merry Christmas everyone! I know that many of you will be spending time with your families today – enjoy every minute of it.
I took this photo this past summer while exploring Banff as well as Jasper National Park (right next to Banff) with my girlfriend Anne. On this day, the weather was not particularly great, but it did add some pretty epic weather sightings such as this one along the way.
I always find it interesting how much weather can play a roll in a trip, a photo, a memory, a moment. Sometimes rain can ruin a trip, sometimes it will make for the memory of a lifetime. Other times you’ll be begging for the sun to come out to cap off an epic sunset and other times you’ll be wishing it would hide to get you out of 100 degree heat. You just never know. Regardless, make the most of it!
Photo of the Day – Stormy Athabasca Falls – Jasper National Park, CanadaIn July I took a trip to Banff with my girlfriend Anne – although you must know that by now with my non-stop Banff ‘Photo of the Days’ (here, here, and here). Well, what’s funny about this photo is that its not from Banff, but from the neighboring Canadian National Park, Jasper. Jasper National Park is equally as large as Banff, but not nearly as well known as Banff seems to have hoardedd all of the spectacularly blue lakes which have made Banff so famous.
Regardless, Anne and I drove all the way out to this waterfall and we actually got pretty lucky. It was a stormy day as you can see, but that mean the waterfall was in full throttle! With a light rain and an incredible amount of mist from the falls themselves, it was hard to get this shot off, but I just managed it. This is no Iguazu, but pretty cool I think.
