Johnson Lake

Directions

Take Highway 1 from Calgary and turn right at the first Banff exit. From here follow the signs for Johnson lake.

Background

It was still dark when I arrived, with heavy snow falling. This time of year is great for capturing the white snows of winter against the calm reflecting water of a mountain lake. It won’t be long until these lakes freeze over for the winter. Johnson Lake is a small thin lake stretching East to West with the best views for sunrise about a 1km hike from the parking lot. While this particular morning wasn’t going to have any views of a sunrise, I was looking forward to exploring the freshly snow covered landscape.

    Your photographs are INCREDIBLE, Patrick! However I’m glad not to be living in Canada anymore. My opinion of snow is: it’s great to look at through a window or on a computer, not so wonderful in real life! I don’t think I’d miss it if I never saw another snowflake in my life! Here we’re basking on the beach still and enjoying green leaves and palm trees!

    These are some truly beautiful photos. In Los Angeles, we tend to romanticize the North and all its beautiful forests. Your photos do nothing to temper that romanticizing.

      I live in Los Angeles as well, and you have me wishing for a white Christmas.

    2nd picture down with the fence and the lake reminds me of somewhere I wouldn’t mind living. 🙂

    Ever consider releasing these as 72dpi desktop wallpaper for computers? I think the second image would work well for that.

    Wow! Great great great pictures. Can you please help me with a doubt, Is it necessary to use a tripod for shooting landscape in linear reflection scenes? How do we avoid aberrations of lens at high zooms? I’m using a bridge camera. Do you have any suggestion?

    I now live in Costa Rica, but these photos remind me of a time when I was younger and lived in Leadville, Colorado. It is a beautiful place.

    Ah, Banff in the snow season. When all of the touri had departed we enjoyed the interlude between summer and winter ski season. The walks in autumn so lovely as dustings of snow accented the textures of the mountains. Your current photo series are like a memory lane of youth for me. Thank-you.
