The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

I shot this at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies, Banff National Park.

A great travel photograph requires two things: a great subject, and great light.  We were out hiking around Lake Louise, one misty morning, when this view popped into my trusty Nikon’s viewfinder.

Although the light was not popping the colors, like I generally prefer, this magnificent subject, along with the beautiful reflections in the water still made for a beautiful capture.  The low hanging clouds add to the mystery of the setting.

As you can see in the media photograph from Fairmont (right), the setting of this chateau is simply indescribable.
