In late January I went on a ten day trip to Banff National Park, Oregon and Utah. While planning for the Banff portion of my trip, I came across photos of winter at Emerald Lake, which is in the nearby Yoho National Park – it took my breath away. I had to see it for myself.
I was looking to capture the glow of the Emerald Lake Lodge before dawn and under cloudy or mostly cloudy conditions. Luckily enough, one of the mornings I was there the weather forecast called for mostly cloudy conditions.
I got out of the car and scouted the area around the lake briefly. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. There were pillows of pristine snow everywhere. The lodge glowed even more than I could have imagined, perhaps because there was a wedding reception event the night before, and the mountains rose majestically under some beautiful cloud cover. I could have set up just about anywhere and capture a fantastic picture, but this composition fit my eye the best. It was as perfect a morning as there could have been.
