Dome Glacier    Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

A perfectly clear winter day from Sunwapta Pass on the Banff, Jasper Icefields Parkway. Winter photography does have its challenges. On this particular visit to the Columbia Ice fields the temperature dipped down to -35 C. Fumbling with a 4x5 in cold temperatures is not ideal, forget about trying to catch fleeting images. As soon as I had finished taking this image I made a mad dash for the warmth of my van only to do a face plant into a extra large snow drift.
