Opabin Plateau in Yoho National Park is a location that I have explored many times. The alpine environment combined with small lakes, stunning scenery and alpine Larch is a big draw for many nature photographers.This image was more the result of boredom than a concentrated effort on my part. Fellow photographer Michael Wheatley and I had been waiting for several hours for the weather to clear. While I was standing around I set up a few compositions and decided to give this one a try. I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
