I highly recommend if you can do it, to take a taxi to the west end of Vermillion lake road and hike back to town. It's a long hike, but so well worth it for the photo ops. That's what I did to get these shots...it forced me to take my time look around and enjoy the morning!

Thanks for the kinds words all.

The third is cute, but the first two are spectacular. I like the background intertwining of light and clouds in the second one.

Thanks...it was a pretty great day. The 3rd shot is actually form the day prior at the Whyte Museum Pioneer cabin exhibit. I just liked the simplicity of the shot mixed with the 2 colour contrasts.
Here are a few more from my hike into town.....I stopped at the cemetery in town also.
Raven's feet in the snow...



The Beaver pond..




My favorite shot from the cemetery...



Jim, would love to see your take on the hike!

Hey I remember that log in the first shot

The sun glare & lens flare in the last shot is stunning. Great work Lisa.

These are wonderful. Nice variation in PP treatments that add to the images. I really like the 'raven's feet in the snow'. Well spotted!

The first one is wonderful, but the wood in the front is too large, and it distracts us from the mount

Thanks folks.
Zeelich...thanks for the comments...I don't agree with you on your observation however. I think the detail in the wood adds to the shot and draws the eye in...the log detail and drawing the eye to the water was what I was after here with the mountain being the second player in this image....that was the vision I saw when I took this shot.
