Taking Pictures of the Canadian Rockies in the Fog

When you visit Banff, Jasper and the other Canadian Rockies parks in the summer, the extreme weather conditions often result in fog clouds passing through the mountains.

As an entry on Wikipedia explains, fog is a cloud that is in contact with the ground.

With a digital camera in hand, the trick is to make the most of the drama fog adds to the scene.

Here’s a some examples of pictures of fog in the Canadian Rockies and followed by tutorials on taking pictures of fog.

A Jasper National Park traveler took this shot at Maligne Lake as the fog passed by.

And this traveler’s picture shows clouds engulfing Mt Rundle in Banff National Park.

And this one shows the fog approaching the docks at Moraine Lake in Banff National Park.

Here’s a few tutorials about photography in the fog:
