We made a one day trip to Waterton Lakes National Park, Canada. There we visited one of the beautiful lakes and an amazing looking fall. (Cameron Lake and Cameron Falls)

This is a part of the famous Prince of Wales Hotel. Which is a national historic site.

There are more photos to come on Waterton Lakes NP, and after that I will return to Glacier.

Hallo Niek.
Daken zijn meestal rood, maar deze kleur is zeer bijzonder en doet het erg goed zo. Mooi compositie tegen een blauwe hemel die eigenlijk nog een klein wit wolke nodig had.

Groet Frans

Hi Niek,
This is an excellent composition with superb colors. I like also the lighting of it with the sharpness that shows all the beautiful details of this roof. very well done.

Beautiful Niek! nice saturation on the colors and I love the steeples against that blue sky! Nice!

Très belle composition Niek! La netteté et la clarté des couleurs sont excellentes.

Love this shot... it turns a building into a piece of sculpture... this really is painting with light and colour. Excellent!

Hoi niek, dit is weer een juweeltje hoor..
Ik vind de kleuren van het dak en de lucht goed op elkaar aansluiten. maar ik ben nog meer onder de indruk van het lijnenspel in deze compositie.

Misschien had een liggende foto meer daarvan kunnen laten zien.

TFS, Frank

Hello Niek,
Rich colours, great lines!
I appreciate the framing, resulting in a graphic creation with strong lines...
The angle of lighting adds life to the structure, and enhances the fine details!

Hi Niek,
Beautiful photo. The colors and lines of this are terrific. It brings the viewer's eyes right up to the weathervane. Nicely done, TFS Julie

Excellent compo Niek. Strong, vivid colours. Sharp lines and I like your use of the empty space in the sky.

WOW, i did not see this one earlier on!
The colours here are splendid Niek.
Very interesting! The composition and POV are something else.

Well done and TFS.
Best regards and have a great weekend.
Daniel :)

Hi Niek,
what colours!I'm so into this combination these days! beautiful object*
have a nice weekend*

Well, I was there too. So how come I didn't think to take a shot like that???? huh??? It's really nice Niek. Now that I think about it...the last time I was at the Prince of Wales Hotel the wind was so strong it blew me off my feet in the parking lot! Perhaps I wasn't thinking about photography...Then again, from that position, lying in the parking lot, I should have seen an interesting pov like this!!! This is really sharp with wonderful color saturation! You have a real knack for the more intimate compositions.


Evelynn : )

Quite a bit of polarizing on this one, Niek, but it does work to create a nice contrast between the dark blue sky and the green of the roof of this historic hotel. Nicely composed with the inversed V created by the gables. Well done!

P.S. Just back from Wyoming but I have not yet started sorting through the pictures I have taken...soon I will publish a few.

Hi Niek,
I love this shot - the green and the blue together with the sun, a wonderful shot, I like it, thanks and greetings

Lovely shapes and colours, green against te blue sky. I don't often see buildings painted that way. TFS.

Nice composition, Niek! Not easy to manage all these forms, but you did it very well. Nice shot!
