Spirit Island

By Jasper87  
One of the most photographed views in the Rockies, Spirit island is a tiny 'island' in Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park, Canada. The water was a bit low at the end of the summer so a little bit messy in the foreground. The Island is reached by pleasure boat or canoe, and if the former you only get 20 minutes to grab a snap or two then back on boat to let the next boat arrive.

I want a Canon EOS 5D MkIII - such stunning clarity in this and all your images.
Somebody making a fortune with the boat trips but what a rewarding vision!

Another beauty. In your Canadian series you have opened up a whole range of possibilities for aspiring visitors (including a possible return trip for me) to the Canadian Rockies, with images of locations I've never even heard of, but would love to see for myself. Brilliant in every way.

That house/lens combo is brilliant, n'est pas?

Looks to me, on my screen, as if it needs a 0.5 twist anti-clockwise? (The water at the far end of the lake).
