This beautiful winter scene is along the Icefields Parkway of Banff National Park. A single small pine tree sits in an open meadow covered with snow. The sun shines down on the small pine tree casting its shadow along the snow.
Pine trees in Banff National Park often grow more densely rather than a single tree in the middle of a large field but it does make for a simple, clean winter picture.
The French name for the Icefields Parkway is Promenade des Glaciers. The Icefields Parkway is a scenic road in Alberta, Canada, also known as Highway 93. The parkway travels through Banff National Park and Jasper National Park.
Established in 1885, Banff National Park is the oldest national park in Canada. The park is located in the Rocky Mountains. This national park is 6,641 square kilometers (2,564 square miles) of land. This mountainous area of the park includes glaciers, ice fields, dense forest and high landscapes.
