This is a typical view that can be seen from the Icefields Parkway, which connects Banff and Jasper. This may be the most spectacular piece of mountain road in the world, and is well worth exploring for anyone who admires natural beauty.
Photography is my dedicated passion. I admire almost all types of photography, but landscape is my main focus, with my main influences being Michael Kenna, Jim Brandenburg and Galen Rowell. While the grand landscape of Ansell Adams first drew me to photography, I now prefer to approach the subject from different angles instead of head on as that master did. At this point I'm still learning and having fun with it, and I hope to keep photography as my hobby, my personal project, rather than making it into a business. Any comments and feedback are most welcome!
Bob Garrigus Alvin!
Great to see your work here on Photoburst. I am really interested in your views on photography and have to say that I am 100% in agreement. Some have been urging me to try and make this hobby a career but I fear the freedom and enjoyment I love might be lost if this great pass time were to become a "job".
I continue to enjoy and find inspiration in your images.
Much respect and best of light to you!

Photoburst is a photo of the day contest focusing on Travel Photography.
Everyday (from the 1st until the 28th), among all images uploaded by our contributors, we publish a photo of the day (POTD).
Every week (on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th), among all POTDs of the preceding week, we select a photo of the week (POTW).
On the 30th we select the best POTW as photo of the month (POTM).
From May 2015 onwards we will cease to award gift certificates to Kiva and guest editorship invitations to our POTM winners. However, occasionally we may accept/address guest editorship proposals, as we strongly believe they are a great way of further involving photographers with Photoburst. Interested? Email us at email@example.com.

... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
