As much as I would have like to see this shot sharper, I do like the softer, film quality of the shot resulting from the scanning. It gives a very nostalgic, timeless feel, as if you saw this on a big road trip. The contrast of the cool grey and blue tones and whites on the mountain with the warmer browns and sepias in the bare trees below "framing" the mountain really add to the shot. Very good compo and balance, and I like the inclusion of the clouds at the top edge, balancing with the road at the bottom. Excellent long DOF and perspective with the trees at the side and the road leading the eye to the mountain. The mountain looks so imposing and beautiful all at the same time. TFS!
Beautiful picture! Great pov. I leave it to Otto to have the brains and figure out its name. I think it is very well captured. The tones and lighting is super. TFS
Hello Pierre (Piet) :-)
Good work, I like how you selected the mountains and road , it really enhances them. Best regards with a warm smile,
very nice landscape photo from a big country.
It could have been a very nice picture, because the POV is marvellous. What I miss is sharpness and when a picture like this is not sharp enough you loose the overall picture.
However it is just my opinion.
What an amazing giant!! My mother has been trying to convince me to go visit them, I think it'll happen next year.
TFS this wonderful view.
A very beautiful shot eith excelelnt POV. Sharpness is a bit on lower side but still it gives it an artistic look.
Best of Wish
Year and month are same, what was date as I was born in May 1976.
Paysage très impressionnant.
La montagne semble avoir été peinte...
Superbe vue.... C'est ça que je veux voir plus tard cet été
J'aime beaucoup la prise de vue magnifique de cette montagne!
C'est presque irréel!
Beau travail Pierre,
Bon samedi soir,
Hi Pierre: Could be the Sulphur Mountain Range, just guessing.... Does this look familiar Three Sisters? Here is another website to consult about
1976 - It's been a while, Pierre! Time for a return visit! Much has changed, but the mountains are still there!
This seems to be Cascade Mountain by Banff, seen from the westbound Trans-Canada Highway. The cascade that gives it the name is barely visible on the lower left side of the image, above the trees. A pretty bad image, hope you don't mind me saying, taken in poor visibility conditions, with low contrast and sharpness. A tourist's snapshot, rather than a photographer’s picture.
Pierre I am going to hurt you! Sorry, but posting a photo is asking a reaction. Scene is ok, lovely even but its to unsharp. Hope your weekend is good and bye
It's an old photo and it can be seen. Never the less the composition is wonderful. Great POV I like how the mountain dominates the photo.
Very well done.
Great lead-in and the majestic mountain is really overwhelming!
Well composed image and the ciolours are remarkably good for a more than 30 years old image!
The formation is outstanding here, perfect details and an effect wonderful of the picture. Excellent sharp details.Wonderful presentation of Your posting.
Paysage très impressionnant.

splendide paysage canadien
La montagne resssort trés bien avec la route
A very informative note. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom. Merci et bon weekend!
There are different mountains to be seen from the village - of course the famous Three Sisters, and then the Grotto Mountain and Lady Macdonald - as you could already guess from the name Laird River in your note a great scottish influence here. The mountain are approx. 8/9000 ft-2800m. heigh.
Very impresssive picture - Alberta is stunningly beautiful - I have driven our RV as far as Lake Abraham coming from Lake Louise - but I will never forget the beauty of the place.

Très beau paysage. Impressionnant. Je n'ai jamais eu la chance d'aller si loin à l'ouest encore.
Merci de nous faire partager.
Very nice shot with excellent POV. Here you present this refreshing picture of the valley and snow capped mountains. Real good one.
great POV and composition...
Apparently missed this posting and I shouldn't! Wow….great impressive panorama my friend, it almost look surrealistic. The FG might be a tad brighter in my opinion. Anyway a superb picture Pierre, my compliments.
oh my god!this is the coolest pic i saw today. the only places i've been to see these mountains is in waterton.
This is so beautiful Pierre. Post card perfect shot.A little bit short on sharpness however, good enough for an old picture. The perspective and your eye for beauty really gives kick on this picture.
Wow, on dirait presque un montage...ça m'a fait penser à l'enfer de Dante...lol
En tout cas, photo très impressionnante !

merhaba dear pierre
beautiful nature and landscape.beautiful snowy mountains and depth.well done.
Beautiful mountain which ever one it is. I thought it was Mt Robson when I saw it as my ex father in law brought some photos back from a holiday in Canada and it stuck out like that, but as it is the highest peak I guess that would be logical. The old photos may not come out perfectly but they are sure better than not having them at all and at least once they have been scanned they cant deteriorate with age. Its a beauty.
