The wallpapers I’ve selected for march are all from a single sunrise storm at Lake Louise. In January, I arrived at the lake during a heavy snowfall. I almost ducked inside for coffee, admitting defeat before even attempting a single frame. Instead, I setup and waited just in case the weather abated. Luck prevailed. The sky opened up behind Mt Fairview and I captured some of my all-time favorite images from this location. Fifteen minutes later, the light vanished and the whiteout continued.
The experience was all-too-common and one that truly emphasizes a rule aspiring landscape photographers should live by:
Wait until all hope of light is gone, and then wait at least fifteen more minutes. It will pay off.

I have two images for widescreen displays this month. Although the frames were captured close together, the small shift in perspective changes them dramatically. One is obviously Lake Louise, as the infamous boathouse is clearly visible. By shooting closer to the water, the second image feels more natural and isolated.
