An Amazing Photo Walk
As an Olympus Visionary I regularly have the opportunity of meeting like-minded photographers in order to explore new areas as part of a photo walk. Usually the walks last for a couple of hours and are relatively close to the store that is hosting the event. On July 8th I had the pleasure of being part of an incredible event in Banff National Park in Alberta.
Sponsored by The Camera Store and Olympus America we departed Calgary at 1 p.m. and visited numerous scenic locations with the 14 participants. Later in the day we also had an amazing meal in the heart of Banff.
During this jam-packed day we visited a number of stunning locations including Spray Lakes, Lake Minnewanka, Vermillion Lakes and others. I asked participants to send me a few of their favourite shots from the day. Here they are, along with a few of my own.
I've had the opportunity to visit the Banff area a number of times over the years, and it never gets old. It is truly a majestic place. I think that most who attended were sorry to see the light fade away for the day. Thanks to The Camera Store, and Glen Gordon and Yannick Michaud from Olympus for organizing the event. And a final thank you goes to all of the participants. I had a blast!
