Land of Frodo

I ended up one day mid afternoon at Lake Louise in Banff.  During the middle of the afternoon on a warm late summer day, Lake Louise is packed with people!  It’s not an ideal situation for a photographer so I found a trail, that took you up way above the lake.  The vantage point at the top wasn’t great for taking images, but the hike up gave me a good workout and got me into the forested area.  Along the way up and back there was some amazing foliage and some fantastic fungus (mushrooms).  I captured this macro image and it reminded me of a scene from The Lord of the Rings so thus the name of this blog post today.

Have a great weekend!
