A glimpse of winter at Boom Creek
I went for a hike along the trail to Boom Lake on the weekend and felt like I walked into a preview of winter. The lake is near the aptly named Storm Mountain on the western edge of Banff National Park and the area was already blanketed in 1-1.5′ (30-45cm) of snow. With the sun shining, I was happy to walk along the trail for a couple of kilometres as it was an area new to me. From the trailhead a bridge crosses over Boom Creek almost immediately. I slipped under the bridge on my way out and set up the photograph above which I felt illustrated the wintry feel. This image is also the December image on my just completed 2016 landscape calendar so it was a worthwhile hike on a couple of fronts!
really beautiful place, great shot

I completely agree with you Drea.

At first when you wrote that you slipped under the bridge, I thought literally. I like the combination of water ice snow and blue sky -striking!

One day you should continue on to Boom Lake. I think you would find it a good place for photography.

I will! I loved the area in the short time I had. With your vote, I will make sure to visit the lake soon.
