Rural landscapes: the ski hill pilgrimage
MT. NORQUAY ROAD, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
I drove up Mt. Norquay Road to a spectacular viewpoint of the town of Banff, hoping to capture it and the surrounding Rocky Mountains in the pre-dawn light of ‘blue hour’. Unfortunately, most of the peaks were shrouded in cloud and light snowfall. That’s when I noticed the line of vehicles going around the semi-circle on their way to the Mt. Norquay ski resort. Fortunately, my wide-angle zoom lens was just wide enough to capture the curving lights in a long exposure.
