Vermillion Lakes

I’m taking you back up to Banff, Alberta, Canada today. This image was taken on my last day in Banff.  Calgary based photo blogger Heath O’ Fee and I ventured up to Vermillion Lakes for a sunrise shoot.  The sunrise came up over Tunnel Mountain and silhouettes of Mount Rundle and Sulpher Mountain. Processing this image makes me want to return to this area because I just touched the surface of places to explore in the short 5 days I was in the area. Banff consists of 4 national parks and I could probably spend a week in each park exploring.
