Hi All,

I've never actually posted on here before, but I though it was time I gave it a shot. I've seen this place photographed many times on here, but this was taken from on top on the Little Beehive, a shot no-one seems to post. Well, hope you like it, taken with a 10-20mm sigma, hand held.:D

It's a lovely scene but looks unlevel, like all the water will run out of the lake. we can't have that, since I will be there in August.

I see what you mean, its due to that tree line infront being the side of a mountain and at a funny angle. If I straighten the water the mountains look like their laying down ;)
When you go make sure to climb up to mirror lake, Agnes tea house and either of the beehives, hard work but the views are great!
Minnewanka is good, there's a great viewpoint from the miners trail thats quite easy to get to. Also go to Johnson Canyon (& the ink pots on a clear day), Emerald Lake, the entire icefields parkway, and generally anywhere is just amazing!

I agree! i've been in a road trip, 10-11 days ago from Calgary to Lake Louise through Icefields Parkway to Jasper/Mount Robson Park.
Imop ,Banff, Lake Loise,Moraine ,Canmore area is amazing also ,still kind of crowded:, But... the Parkway is wild,makes you feel you are not on Earth anymore,there are are 48 peaks over 3000m along the 230km section, glaciers, blue lakes and rivers no heavy comercial trafic,logging,mining,​hunting: i've seen 4 black bears, lots of elk,goats,wolfs just on the side of the road, i don't know what's deeper if you go few miles:godzila,dinos and BigFoot maybe,:)

Spent several weeks there. The climb beyond the lake was tremendous and beyond the tea house just got more spectacular. The hike across from the Columbia Ice Fields to the original pass is worth the trip. Up then level and you can look across the valley to the Ice fields


May there be peace

Very nice shots.

I lived in Calgary for a few years almost 30 years ago
did that hike a few times.....what a spectacular hike
it is. The whole area is full of incredible photo ops.

Thanks for bringing some good memories up to the surface.
My mother loved Lake Louise so much that we had a memorial
bench made and place there after she left us.

The clouds are a bit over-exposed, but the view is impeccable.

Keep up the good work.

For those going to that area, I would highly recommend a stop at Peyto Lake as well (bring your polarizer!).

Pretty! (although I agree with sparker about the tilt and understand how it's hard to fix it). We liked Little Beehive better than Big Beehive (we had it to ourselves and the views were great). Unfortunately, we didn't get to finish our hike as on the way to Plain of Six Glaciers my husband slipped and caught himself on a sharp rock (earned himself five stitches and an up close and personal view of the Canadian health care system :-P).

Was it as bad as the American media portrays it? :lol:

Beautiful shots, and you were lucky to have such nice clouds to give interest in the sky. The far horizon line is actually pretty straight, so it must just be an optical illusion. Hope to visit there one day, my partner has been and says it is stunning.

Thanks everyone, I have to admit that the photo was more or less straight out of the camera. I just tried to lower the highlights a bit, hide some of the over exposed clouds so hows this?

Thanks for the tips, everyone. I've been to Lake Louise a couple times, but never hiked above the lake. Plan to do that on this visit. Looking forward to Banff, the Parkway & Jasper. The last time there was smoke from forest fires killing the views. Glad you worked on the clouds, understand about the tilted lake.
