The beautiful Vermilion Lakes are situated a very short distance from the town of Banff and are a highlight for any visit to the national park. Wonderful views of Mount Rundle, Tunnel Mountain and the Fairholme Range can be seen from the shores of the three lakes which are separated by wetlands. On a clear, still evening the lakes offer beautiful reflections of the surrounding mountains and landscape.
Snow covered Mount Rundle (2949 metres/9675 feet) and Tunnel Mountain (1692 metre/5551 feet) with reflections on a partially frozen 2nd Vermilion Lake with full moon over the snow capped Fairholme Range at twilight (dusk) during winter near the town of Banff in Banff National Park, Canadian Rocky Mountains, Alberta, Canada. Banff National Park forms part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, aperture of f/11.0, exposure time of 5/1 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 27mm.
