What a beautiful image of the Rockies! It appears that Global Warming may be just that, and we may be in trouble with Mother Nature if we All do not change our ways.
You capture the subtle changes in light with perfection, and I love the spires as they rise up above the peak's form. This locale must be a beautiful location in the fall with the first snow laying across the rock ledges.
Excellent view into the Rocky Mountains...

Hi MCF Janice,
Another great scene capture from the fossile reserve, Rocky Mountains taken from wonderful low vantage point.
I love the effect the light has here, such a warm and inviting shot. Looks like ice cream :) hehe..
TFS and have a nice night MF!

Another very majestic view of the mountains at Kananaskis. Wonderfully done! Your photo could easily be on a Travel Alberta Web site! While I was aware of snow melting and coming down the mountains, I had not thought of snowpacks before. Let's hope that the snowpacks get better this year, but that they melt gradually. TFS.

Hi Janice , a very nice view of the Rockies with good natural color and a long depth of field with lots of sharp detail.
it does look rather dry here.

What an awesome view you have posted for us today. You are very fortunate to have such majestic mountains and dense forested areas close to home. Love the composition and beautiful contrasting colors as well as the excellent exposure.
Those gorgeous blue skies is something that I rarely get to see in my part of Ohio. We seem to have cloudy skies alot, the result of living so close to the Great Lakes.

Absolutely beautiful landscape from the Rocky Mountains, simple yet breathtaking. The pines in the foreground makes fine contrast with the bald rocks in the background. Majestic photo. Bravo Madame.
Tfs, have a nice weekend, László

I like this picture very much. It's pure nature, pure mountainscape (is this English?). That also means it's simple and the plain beauty is authentic. Your picture reflects the vernal atmosphere at best, even if you explain that you sometimes get a lot of snow in March. that also happens in my country... I made a ski hiking tour last Satruday and the powder snow was fabulous!

such a lovely and peaceful view of the landscape. The rugged mountin is well seen in its rocky texture and the light makes it so lively. The blue sky is so pretty and dramatic.
Well presented landscape with beautiful tall trees.
