Tourists at Moraine Lake Photos, Banff National Park, Canada.

Tourists enjoy the view lakeside, at Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, the Canadian Rockies, Canada.

Hey Folks,

Here’s another image from Moraine Lake, a couple of tourists enjoying the view, lakeside, of Wenkchmena Peaks and Moraine Lake. Banff National Park is a sweet place, with an incredible array of photographic opportunities and interesting subjects to shoot. I could go up to Moraine Lake a thousand times and not get bored with that view, I reckon. It does get a little sticky, inundated with bus loads of tourists as the day goes by, but early in the morning there’s usually very few people there.

One of the cool things about Banff National Park, for the nature photographer, is there are so many simply awesome scenes that are super-accessible. Just a short walk off the road and you’ve got this incredible scene. For the more adventurous traveller, there’s a ton of hikes and trails to explore and places to get into the backcountry and away from it all, which is great too, but for some really easy access, Banff National Park is the spot. Moraine Lake is just one of the places among literally dozens of scenic opportunities. I’ll try to post a few more along the way.

    You’ve taken some great shots at Banff, but the only thing that bothers me is how commercialized the park has become in spots. I hope that they are beginning to stop some of the hotels & other building mania that has been taking over the park. I can see why you love Wrangell so much.What a difference!!Banff is a beautiful place, but the development has got to stop somewhere.

    Hey Beth,

    Yeah, that’s always been one of the things about the Canadian Rockies, banff National Park, Jasper National Park, etc, that bums me out. It’s a double-edged sword – I can run into towns like Banff or Jasper and grab a latter and a bagel (I’m so cosmopolitan) the same afternoon I’m out photographing elk and bighorn sheep. It makes the place very accessible, which in turn makes it more crowded. I have no idea what the answer to that is. The Wrangells thankfully, offer some respite from that nonsense.
