A favourite spot for me to stop and photograph in Banff National Park is the Muleshoe Picnic Area. It’s along Highway 1A not too far along (5.5km) to the west of the Banff townsite. The site has a beautiful aspen grove that has almost too many options for images. I made this image last summer from right alongside the parking area and after getting out of my vehicle, I immediately saw a composition that reminded me of something Ansel Adams might have made an image of. Just recently I made a 40″x50″ print of this image that looks really amazing!

  1. Hi Colin, beautiful images I especially like this one the tones and texture are brilliant, I also have the DP3 Merrill and DP1M. I know you can print big with these cameras but is there any interpolation involved when you print 40″ x 50″, I just print small at the moment and think I am missing out on all that lovely detail, they look absolutely brilliant on the screen that 3D look as they say. I bought these cameras for landscape work I still have to use them in earnest yet, I think it’s time for the practising to stop and do some serious landscape with them.

    Keep up the good work great images.

    Cheers Mick

    • Hi Mick, thanks for your kind words! Lots of interpolation to get up to this size. 50″ is pushing it a bit, but it still holds up pretty well on this image. I regularly print up to 40″ with ease. The files are beautiful!
