Doors Open Hamilton – Tip Top

On Sat. May 2 we made a quick stop in Hamilton to visit a couple of the Doors Open sites. This is the on the second floor the the former Tip Top Tailor building at 14 James St North Hamilton. The building is to be renovated soon and this floor has not been open to the public for over 35 years. I always find it interesting to explore old spaces.

Peace and Tranquility

Peace and Tranquility - Vermilion Lakes, Alberta, Canada

Peace and Tranquility – Vermilion Lakes, Alberta, Canada

As I set up my tripod to compose this shot I couldn’t help but be in awe of the sense of Peace and Tranquility I felt here. With the mountains reflecting in the water, the Vermilion Lakes in Banff National Park, Alberta Canada is a place where one can stroll along the shore and forget about the stress of everyday life. It was such a treat to be there and attempt to capture at least a portion of that Peace and Tranquility.

Mountain Dock

As we drove from Banff to Canmore Alberta the Rockies continued to provide a breathtaking backdrop. We found this spot with some open water beautifully reflecting the mountains. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day with temperatures above freezing and a wonderful mix of sun and clouds in the sky.

Lake Louise Albert

Lake Louise

Having only seen Lake Louise in pictures, I didn’t know what to expect as we pulled into the parking lot of Lake Louise Alberta. Most of the pictures I recalled seeing were taken in the summer of the aqua green lake at the foot of these majestic mountains. Seeing it in the winter on a beautiful sunny day was stunning. Walking out onto the ice provided a view of the mountains you could only get from a boat in the summer. This shoot is a panorama made up of 4 photos stitched together in Photoshop.

Mountain Cabin

The Canadian Rockies are breath taking! We were making our way over to Lake Louise and out of the corner of my eye I spotted this mountain cabin. We turned around to investigate and parked in an area that cross country skiers use to access this area. We followed their trails to get a closer look. Step off the snow packed trail is something you only do once! A couple of steps to the right or left and you are up to your thigh in snow. The skiers had a good chuckle – I see you are out post holing they teased! True enough. Our off trail tracks looked like post holes. It was all great fun and the view was spectacular.

After stopping at the side of Highway 2 between Calgary and Edmonton Alberta to shoot a couple of old cars, (see previous posts) we hopped back into our rental car and turned down a nearby country side road in search of more rusted treasure. About half a mile down the road, at the end of farm lane, we were rewarded with this old Ford truck. Again we circled around it looking for the best angles. I love the earthy colours of the rust and the nostalgic lines of these old vehicles.
