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!
