View Full Version : Eiffel peak (Lake Louise area)
07-29-2008, 10:26 AM
Saturday we went up Eiffel peak - its about 1200m elevation to a 3000m high peak.
We started to get hale and I took the picture of what is still left to go when my jacket got out of the bag.
Getting up there eventually and a look at Eiffel tower (approachable by climbing gear - not me...). Paradise valley below.
A look at Mt Temple the ultimate scramble - the 3rd high peak of the Rockies. Hope to make it this summer.
C&C are welcome.

All three are very impressive shots. WAY too high for me to be, but glad there are people like you to go there and take these lovely photos.

A very nice sense of depth in the second shot, and a good sequence of peaks leading our eye to the highest in the third. Very nice colour too.

A lovely series, and a reminder of how beautiful the Rockies are!

I like the #2 shot the most. The colors and depth of field is nice like Tony mentioned, it shows the beautiful landscape surrounding this place.

These are terrific. On the second one the tower stands out so well from the valley below. You caught the lakes and the timberline. Thanks for sharing.

Hi guys - this is probably the most positive comments I ever got since in the Zo.... if anyone wants to se more mountain shots take a look at http://picasaweb.google.com/Michelle.Calgary
I hike with quite a few people and do not regret my Nikon D40x for a minute. The haze and the contrast make the shots of very impressive views not so good looking with P&S and without a raw file no way to fix it.
And one thing about skiing - yes there are ski slopes in lake Louise (winter time) back country ski in this area is sort of a death wish due to avalanche.
about photo #2: I could not add sound effects on the ZO ... the mountains in picture #2 are part of the valley of the 10 peaks (20 CAD bill) and behind it a huge glacier dropping ice - so in a nice summer day you can hear it and it sounds like thunder when these chunks of ice come down.

Breath taking shots Michelle, thanks for sharing them. These really give you a sense of just how huge and vast the Rockies are.
