Loved these colorful "float homes."

The Fisherman's Wharf is home to an eclectic group of tenants, including the fishing fleet, live-aboards, float home dwellers and transient vessels as well as the many commercial operators. Was fun to sit, enjoy the foods and observe the busy harbor activities.

Friday's here! Have a wonderful day and weekend!

Titles, titles, titles.....

A view of Mist Mountain rising above Alberta's Bighorn Highway (hwy 40). It reaches an elevation of 3,140 m (10,300 ft). One of many jawdropping scenes found in Kananaskis Country.

Thanks for taking a look! Always appreciated!

Twas a moody morning at Cascade Pond. The mountains were shrouded with the top of Mt. Inglismaldie barely breaking thru the low clouds. Was oh so tranquil and peaceful this morning, before the winds arrived.

When one goes on a photo safari we always hope for good weather, as light is The Boss. My trip last June to Banff had lots of storms. While the rain, wind and storms limited some of my shooting options it did provide some good opps for the stormy shots I also love. We take advantage of whatever is available eh?

Thanks for taking a look! Always appreciated.

A section of the Absaroka range NE of Dunraven Pass. Yellowstone is well known and loved for it's geysers, canyon, waterfalls, thermal wonders, lakes and wildlife. It contains many stunning mountain vistas as well.

There are at least 70 named mountain peaks over 8,000 feet (2,400 m) in Yellowstone in four mountain ranges: Gallatin, Red, Washburn and Absaroka. 46 of the 70 over 12,000 feet are in the Absaroka range. The Absaroka range forms most of the eastern border of Yellowstone Park.

Your views, remarks, faves and suggestions are always appreciated!

A fascinating U shaped peak rising above Canmore AB captured at daybreak.

"The name of the mountain has been subject to much controversy. Originally, the mountain was referred to locally as The Beehive. In 1896 Ha Ling, a Chinese cook for the Canadian Pacific Railway was bet 50 dollars that he could not climb the peak and plant a flag on the summit in less than 10 hours. According to the Medicine Hat News of October 22, 1896, he started the ascent at 7:00 am the previous Saturday morning and was back in time for lunch. As nobody believed his story, he led a party of doubters to the summit where he planted a much larger flag beside the original, this one visible to the naked eye from Canmore. The townsfolk referred to the mountain as Chinaman's Peak in his honour.

In 1997 it was renamed Ha Ling Peak as the term Chinaman was viewed as derogatory." Wikipedia

Couple more shots below.

Enjoy your Sunday and week ahead!
