About the 2017 tour (dates were September 12-17, 2017)
This was the 12th time I've led this trip to the Canadian Rockies. I've actually seen lots of changes in that time, mostly with overall busyness of the area hotels and people at the main lookouts. Still, because my group was small and nimble, we did have several places to ourselves, and a few of my "secret" locations are still just that. The changeable weather provided a great backdrop for our scenic photography, and some fresh snow on the peaks made the mountains look even more impressive. Three times, the reflections of craggy mountains in pristine lakes were the best and longest lasting that I've ever seen in the area. Thank you to the 2017 participants. All images shown here were taken with my Canon 5D Mark IV and 3 lenses: A Tamron 28-300mm lens. A Tamron 150-600mm lens. A Canon 17-40mm lens. I am offering this tour again in September of 2018. Lodging has become difficult to come by in the Banff area but I've managed to secure enough rooms for my group at a great hotel. Click HERE for information about the 2018 tour.
