Beautiful Banff

My husband and I spend a lot of time in Banff, Alberta Canada. The mountains are beautiful, the air is fresh and wildlife abounds. But best of all our granddaughter and her Mommy and Daddy live there.  

I always bring my camera and here are 3 of my images. 

Colourful Elk

I captured this picture of this young male elk just outside my son's home in Banff, Alberta. I decided that I would like to paint him digitally with Corel Painter. I used a variety of brushes including the oil , to portray him in all his glory.

Summer Snow

Imagine that you are taking a drive out in the country. Lunch time comes and you look for a spot to eat . When we stopped here for lunch, I had a hard time remembering to eat. All I could do was stare at the majestic mountain scene that was before me. And of course take pictures. Enjoy the view.
