Love the composition and clarity of those stunning mountain peaks, Clifford. A vibrant and very beautiful capture of this remarkable view. Those peaks have some interesting names too.. like Devil's Thumb and Pope's Peak among others.

While the clarity is ok in the low res images that I post on line the full size images are much sharper, etc. For more info please contact me.

Thank you Heather, glad you like it. This is definitely a beautiful spot in Banff National Park with some amazing mountains.

Wow! The iconic Morants curve done by the great Clifford Dupuis. I considers that as a very nice gift, thank you Clifford. So glad to see that scene through your eyes and emotional. No doubts, your has your way of doing it. The yellow railroad and the turqoise river is just amazing. My father worked 42 years for the CN in Richmond QC. I walked those rails to go fishing all my youth long. Souvenirs.

Again thank you Soooo much for your comments, they are most appreciated. I also felt that this image without a train was inspiring as it allowed the viewer to image their own dreams be it going fishing, riding on the long ago steam trains or the current ultra luxurious Royal Canadian Pacific excursion train.

Fantastic composition and vivid colours Clifford. Looking at this makes me marvel at all the beauty Canada has to offer from coast to coast.

Thanks so very much Debra, and yes we truly are blessed with what our country has to offer.

Description
This scene, aptly named “Morant’s Curve” was made famous by CPR Photographer Nicholas Morant. It was used to promote and market the splendour and awe of the Canadian Rockies to those in Europe in the early 1900’s and to encourage tourism.
