Camping at Maligne Lake

It was a cold morning at the Maligne Lake on Sept 15,2015 when I started paddling to fisherman’s bay  I stayed on this Campground for 2 nights, its overcast the whole trip  but I still manage to take some good black and white photograph, I only brought few sheet of color film (Velvia) but I never use them…I paddled on the third day to the end of the lake and stay for another 2 nights , still overcast, I just took a snap shot on that area, I met lots of nice people, local fisherman’s from jasper,who let me ride thier fishing boat and gave me a fish for supper for my two nights of stay in the camp site,the other two hiker(Edi and Edi) whom I met and company to the  hike to the glacier… 

Here is a series of snap shots for the whole trip…

Before I lunched my canoe, I took a panoramic picture of the lake.

Very deep and full of wonders and surprises. And when you process them! they are like a milky way Galaxy.

  4. Thanks you Bob for talking time to comment, I was there until 8 in the evening and paddled back to my camp at dark.if you got a change to come back rent a canoe and paddled all the way to the end of the lake, there is more spectacular beauty…I like how you process the image despite the weather,and it’s not favorable for me…I wish I can talk to you that day, but i know the boat stay for very short time, i used that boat three times but the time is not enough for me so I decided to paddle…

  5. Thanks for the kind words…someday we will meet and do a photography… you’re only 4 hrs away and if you come across Edmonton, give me a shout and I will meet you…

  6. Hey we met you at Coronet Creek. We fed you lunch. Hope all is well! We were the 5 kayaking ladies.Say Hi to Edi for us.
