Photographs from my trip to the Canadian Rockies

I finally got around to processing the photos I took on my recent trip to Canada's Banff and Yoho National Parks with Mrs R. Here are a few of my favourite images, taken on my Canon 5D Mark III in RAW format, then processed in Lightroom 4. Thanks for taking a look. Just click on any image to view them all in full screen. I hope you enjoy them.

I thought this was a chipmunk at first, but it's a ground squirrel.
I saw a chipmunk later in the same area, but couldn't get
a photo. It was much smaller and with more stripes.
Canon 135mm f2 lens, shot at f6.3 for 1/200sec.

Hmm... I can't quite remember where this was taken, but it was one of
my first shots of the trip so I'd say it was taken in Banff.
Canon 35mm f1.4 lens, shot at f11 for 1/25sec.

This is Point Cabin at the Emerald Lake Lodge,
where we stayed for four wonderful nights.
Great location, right on the lake.

The light in the woods. This was taken near
Johnston Canyon on our way to a place called
the Ink Pots.

I came across this ice meltwater waterfall heading out
from Emerald Lake one morning.

A Hoary Marmot. I'd never seen one before, but we
managed to identify it from a book at the lodge.
It was taken at Emerald Basin.
