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.
November is one of my favorite times of year to take photos, as the lakes have just begun to freeze and there is plenty of foreground interest.
This is the sunrise from the 3rd Vermilion Lake at the end of Vermilion Lakes Drive.
This is the sunset from the second lake, with Rundle in the distance.
