OMG Laura, this sure looks like wilderness. Love the warm light and those clouds rounds the shot out perfectly, well done my friend. I guess Kiki and Leif are about ready to head back home by now. I know they had a blast.

Hi Sabrina, Paddy, Chris and John!!! Kiki and Leif are LOVING the ROCKIES and we have had SO DARNED MUCH FUN with them. We toured Banff together yesteday from about 9:30 am till 9:00PM!

We saw 2 foxes, (ON WAS HEATING A SQUIRREL WHOLE! UGH!) Giant Crows, A Bull Elk and then some Female Elk later. :) They saw BEARS from the Gondola ride in the Lake Louise area last week! WOW! So happy for them!

It has been a BLAST!

Thank you all. Having a great time here and really enjoying your comments!

Hi Valarie and Renata! Okay NOW you guys REALLY have me smiling. WOW! Valarie, I think you need to become a Canadian and live here too. I think part of your heart yearns for this type of beauty? Mine does, too. When we first moved here 20 years ago I missed the ocean so much where I was born and raised and lived...but realized PRETTY FAST that I had been given one BEAUTY for ANOTHER! Wonderful and an even trade off! I might even have the best end of the stick now!

So glad you both love this vista! Thank you again so much!

And I'm so happy that this is a finalist. It shows the splendor of the Rockies that you love so much. And I love them too.
I'm happy about my finalist too. And a little sad that I can't stay and enjoy it. It's late and I have so much work tomorrow.
I'll be back tomorrow night, though.

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.

Congratulations on your beautiful finalist Laura. Sorry I haven't been commenting much lately but we have run out of broadband (fast internet) so are on slow internet until the 21st of this month. I can't even upload a photo on to BP. Roll on the 21st. This is very deserved of a finalist award Laura.

Thank You So Much, Gina. It really is beautiful in the Canadian Rockies. Leif and Kiki Kjaer stood right here with us this very second this image was shot. We all took a deep breath together and enjoyed the view while cameras were shooting.

So glad BP loved this one too! :)

Fun to have you visiting! -Laura

I've long wanted to see Banff... what a beauty! I like the shadows on the mountain, and those tall trees at right. Congratulations!

Thank you Chris! :) I agree with you, and do you know what I like the best about this image? There is no sign of MAN. It's just wilderness and natural beauty. It's why people never come here once if they can afford to return.

Banff has become a huge Honeymoon destination, especially in Hong Kong. The best photos in the world are to be taken here. Okay. I might be a bit bias. HA!

Do you know BPer Courtenay Vanderbilt? She and her hubby were just here last month. We went shooting with them for a day. WOW! She even gets up at the crack of dawn to take her photos and she is just starting to post some of them. I hope you will go take a peak!

Also Ron McEwan has dozens of images he has posted while he and his wife were here in July 2009.

LUCKY ME getting to meet all of the BPers as they come through! :)

-Laura :)
