Vermilion Lakes

Vermilion Lakes is a short 5 minute drive NW of Banff. Take Mount Norquay Rd from downtown towards Highway 1. Then turn left at Vermilion Lakes Drive.


This is another older photo but I thought I would share it on here. I had the idea for this for sometime but could never find the right location. One day while driving down by the vermilion lakes with my brother, I finally saw the perfect area for it. It took probably 10-15 tries of my brother walking down the dock at varying speeds. In the end what worked best was having him take one step every 10 seconds and then wait 5 seconds between steps.  There is no Photoshop trickery in this image, other then the black and white conversion. This was also shot right at dusk to allow for longer exposures.
