ABOUT THIS BOOK
Ideally sized as a travel keepsake or corporate gift, Images of Banff is a photographic journey through one of the planet’s most beautiful national parks. It includes images from all parts of Banff National Park and through all four seasons—from famously photogenic lakes to local children playing hockey, and from sweeping landscapes to intimate portraits of local wildlife. The book is divided into four chapters and each image is accompanied by an informative caption.
From the Introduction: Banff National Park, Canada’s oldest and best known national park, encompasses some of the world’s most magnificent scenery. Soaring, snowcapped peaks form a spectacular backdrop for glacial lakes, fast-flowing rivers, and endless forests. Deer, moose, elk, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, black and grizzly bears, and wolves inhabit the park’s vast wilderness, while the human species is concentrated in the picture-postcard town of Banff and the equally scenic village of Lake Louise—two of North America’s most famous resorts.
