15 Favorites from the November 2012 Fire and Ice Canadian Rockies Photos Tour

In keeping with our ‘let them age’ photo workflow, I finally present my 15 favorite images from the November 2012 Fire and Ice Photo Tour. In 2012 we had two out of four mornings with fire and we had a lot of ice and snow because the season started off with a good long cold spell. Who knows what 2013 will bring? For those interested seeing the participant photos from this tour please see this link and scroll down a bit to see everyone’s photos!

If you want to explore the Canadian Rockies in the winter on your own, we have three eBooks specific to winter that cover the area we play around in:

    Darwin ~ a fine collection capturing winter’s wonder and beauty! My favorite is the fantasy land that Tangle Falls presents.

    Outstanding photos, Darwin. Silly me-didn’t even think of filters-sigh, I guess I will just have to go back and take more photos.

    I’ve long browsed your images, but I must say that I really enjoyed this set. I would consider Nordegg and area my wilderness backyard and you sure capture the area well.

    I really like ‘Sunwapta River above Sunwapta Falls’. Did you use a tilt shift lens on that?

    I have a similar location (Ragged Falls on the Oxtongue River just west of Algonquin Park) I keep going back to, especially in winter when the snow and ice are sculptured by the rushing water are magical.

    (I was cleaning up my blog subscriptions this morning and accidentally deleted yours – big mistake! Hence the re-subscribe. Sorry about that.)
