Santa Claus's train

It had snowed the whole of the previous day. We had driven for 8 hours in white out conditions. We woke up in the morning for sunrise and drove out to find dreary conditions - everything was just gray. Bugged, we got back to the hotel room and I got into bed cursing my luck. I was half asleep ruminating about how the last day in Banff was also going to be a whitewash when Vinay said 'Dude, I see a patch of blue in the sky'. I shot out of bed electrified. Could it be? Could it actually be the photographer's nirvana - clearing skies after a snow storm?

We got ready quickly and packed our stuff. I persuaded both of them to skip breakfast as I knew how fleeting this could be. We rushed to this spot that I had researched and setup our cameras. Everything was perfect - snow on the trees, mountains, clearing skies. We only needed a train to grace the picture. Sure enough, it came along within a few minutes and I fervently snapped pictures. After this we drove around to a couple of more spots but since the sun had come out, the snow in the trees had melted and it wasn't as nice.

This was the highlight of the trip for me. The high lasted for days..

P.S: For those of you who have visited Banff, Lake Louise is nestled in between the mountains in the middle of the picture

Valley of flowers - check!

I have a photography bucket list. It contains a bunch of things/phenomenon that I want to photograph in the right conditions. One of them is a valley of wild flowers in full bloom. In my quests so far I have either been too late into the season or the right conditions were absent. I finally got a good opportunity one evening in Palouse last month. If you have photographed flowers you ll know that they never stay still. I took lots of shots and this one was the least blurry.
