Canadian Rockies Fine Art Photography Prints For Sale

Featured gallery of Canadian Rockies and Banff pictures by Richard Wong. Museum-quality limited and open edition fine art photography prints for sale.

The Canadian Rockies has always held a special place in my heart as my earliest memories of scenic landscapes date back to a family road trip in 1986 that started in Banff and Yoho National Parks then ended at Vancouver & Victoria, British Columbia. Banff National Park features some of the most famous scenic landscapes in Canada; including Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Peyto Lake. The park also features the bustling mountain town of Banff and the scenic Icefields Parkway. Other notable National Parks in the region include Jasper & Kootenay National Parks.

My childhood experiences played a major role in inspiring me to pick up a camera, become a photographer, go hiking in the natural environment and revisit locations of immense beauty such as Bow Valley, Saskatchewan River, Athabasca Glacier, Kananaskis Country and Johnston Canyon waterfall. The clean mountain air in the Alberta wilderness forests puts me in a creative mood to photograph the weather patterns and mountain scenery. The Canadian Rockies are a world-class location for wildlife photography as well. I've photographed wildlife including moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep and have seen my fair share of grizzly bears even just outside of Banff town and Canmore. I can't wait for the day when I can play tour guide and take my own young kids to enjoy a sunrise and summer sunset at the same locations that are so near and dear to my heart.

About the Canadian Rockies

The Canadian Rockies are a stunning natural wonder that has been drawing visitors from all over the world for decades. The majestic peaks, pristine lakes, and lush forests of this region offer a feast for the eyes and a rejuvenating experience for the soul.

Located in the western province of Alberta, Canada, the Rockies are a part of the Rocky Mountain range and include famous national parks such as Banff, Jasper, and Yoho. The area is known for its rugged mountain landscapes, alpine meadows, and glaciers, as well as its abundance of wildlife such as elk, bighorn sheep, and grizzly bears.

Banff National Park, established in 1885, is the oldest national park in Canada and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Rockies. The park features over 6,600 square kilometers of rugged wilderness and is home to a wide variety of landscapes, from the towering peaks of the Continental Divide to the serene beauty of the Bow River Valley. Visitors to the park can enjoy a wide range of activities such as hiking, camping, skiing, and wildlife viewing.

One of the main attractions in Banff National Park is the famous Lake Louise, which is known for its stunning turquoise waters and the Victoria Glacier that towers in the background. The lake is surrounded by snow-capped peaks, alpine meadows, and dense forests, making it a popular spot for photography. In the winter months, visitors can go ice-skating on the frozen lake or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride, while in the summer, visitors can take a canoe or kayak out on the lake.

Another popular spot in Banff is Moraine Lake, which is located in the Valley of the Ten Peaks. The lake is surrounded by towering peaks, glaciers, and wildflowers, and is known for its stunning reflections of the surrounding mountains in its crystal-clear waters. Visitors can take a hike around the lake or go for a paddle in a canoe or kayak to fully appreciate its beauty.

Jasper National Park, located to the north of Banff, is also a popular destination for visitors to the Canadian Rockies. The park is known for its rugged wilderness and is home to a wide variety of landscapes, from the glacier-fed Maligne Lake to the thundering waterfalls of Athabasca River. The park is also a popular spot for wildlife viewing, with visitors having the chance to see elk, bighorn sheep, and even the elusive grizzly bear.

Yoho National Park, located to the west of Jasper, is known for its stunning landscapes, including the famous Takakkaw Falls, which is one of the highest waterfalls in Canada. The park is also home to the Natural Bridge, which is a natural rock bridge that spans the Kicking Horse River. Visitors can also hike to the top of the Burgess Shale, which is a fossil-rich formation that dates back to the Cambrian period.
