The Canadian Rocky Mountains in Banff National Park are breathtaking, especially with a touch of fresh snow. Particularly when warm light and a bit of fog comes into play, like in this Canadian winter landscape photograph. Soft morning light warms the evergreens of the forest in the foreground. Additionally, it lights the beautiful peaks of the Rocky Mountains in the back. The rising fog around the mountain peaks is a nice bonus.

The title of this mountain landscape photograph is “Pristine”. It seems to fit the scene well.

This Canadian winter landscape shows the beautiful scenery near Bow Summit. This photograph was taken in December, not that far from the Icefield’s Parkway which connects Jasper National Park and Banff National Park. Both Banff National Park and Jasper National park offer stunning mountain scenery. These parks are, by all means highly recommended for both hiking and landscape photography. This is especially the case when you manage to avoid the crowds in the busy summer months.
