20SB Blogging Prompt: My Favourite Photograph

This week's blogging prompt via 20 20-something bloggers is to share your favourite photograph. Which is quite a challenge, can I really pick only one?


After spending the weekend on beautiful Lake Louise, I have to go with this photo, taken there in October 2011, by my cousin. It really captures the beauty of the lake, I love the composition and it's a miracle that there is not a single tourist in the photo.

This past weekend however, in between morning snow storms, and afternoon thaws, the lake looked a little different.


We were out there for the Annual Lake Louise Pond Hockey Classic, and although our team (Puck Dynasty) didn't win the tournament, we were certainly best dressed. I had a surprisingly great weekend playing team puck bunny and photographer, staying at the incredible Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and singing and dancing along to the live country music at the Brewster's Barn Cookout thingy!

So now I'll invite you to play along, what is your favourite photo? Did you take it? or merely star in it? Does it capture a great story, a beautiful landscape, or just make you smile?

  1. The first picture is gorgeous. Living in flat Chicago, we don't get to see too many breath-taking landscapes like that. And I love that you included a seasonal comparison photo!

    1. Thanks! But don't undercut Chicago, I visited there for the first time this past summer, and thought it was a beautiful city, Plus growing up on the Great Lakes myself, I know how beautiful Lake Michigan can be!

    1. Thanks, I love it two, if you ever get a chance to do the hike to the tea house at the plain of 6 glaciers there, it's well worth the trek!

  4. Gorgeous. I feel like the landscapes are so drab lately here. They're changing, slightly, but I still find myself dreaming about places to visit.
