There's a kind of winter magic out there that I knew I could find along the shore at Lake Minniwanka just outside of the Banff townsite. It has been cold enough and there has been sufficient snow over the last while to allow the magic to happen. With a somewhat decent temperature (that's all relative these days) and a highway showing to be green the entire stretch, the window of opportunity opened for a portion of today. I went searching for that magic!
ice ice baby, there was ice everywhere
I spent a good two hours just eyeing the ice.
In between eyeing the ice, I took time to admire the surrounding scenery.
This shot proves I can fit right in and look like I belong.
The light created scenes that were pretty as a picture so I captured it.
As the morning grew on and noon time approached the clouds approached closer too.
The wind picked up and the snow began to fall.
My window of opportunity began to close so it was time to hike back.

Thank you Minniwanka for the magic show!
