Photographer's Note

I did not have neutral density filters with me so I had to wait a couple hours in the blistering cold in order to get the shot I wanted. I wanted a long exposure to really take advantage of those greens in the river below. I did not have a tripod either so I had to place the camera against a rock for every shot I tried and as you can see there was a cliff there…oh well I was lucky I did not lose the camera this time. Obviously a tripod would have given me a better angle, but a shot is better than no shot at all.

The building you see there is the famous Fairmont Banff Springs.The Banff Springs Hotel is a luxury hotel that was built during the 19th century as one of Canada's grand railway hotels, being constructed in Scottish Baronial style and located in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. The hotel was opened to the public on June 1, 1888.

The hotel is located within a spectacular setting in the Rocky Mountains, just above the Bow Falls, close to thermal springs. The main view from the hotel is across the valley and toward Mount Rundle, which frequently is cited in geology books for its exposed and tilted ancient seabeds.
