My good friend Russell and I took a week-long trip to the Canadian Rockies in 2015. We spent the entire time in search of breath-taking scenes to photograph in addition to just immersing ourselves in the natural landscapes of Banff and Jasper National Park. Many of our hikes and stops began near larger groups of tourists and sight-seers but as we moved in deeper on the trails, the crowds lessened until there were virtually no other visitors in the area. We took advantage of the quiet isolation to capture some of the beauty that surrounded us. Landscape photography requires a lot of patience, as we learned. We would arrive at some spots in torrential rain, but then after an hour it would let up a bit offering some amazing skies to work photograph.
