Winter never looked so good
I'm not a fan of winter or snow, but you make it look good. Especially liked the shots of the snow-laden spruce, the peek-a-boo mountain, and Lake Louise as I've never seen it. Well done!

Oh if winter comes!
Having only enjoyed Lake Louise in the summer, it's quite a surprise to see it covered in ice - and ice sculptures! While it looks great in the sun, I'm sure it was still very cold - and I have to say that I prefer the warmth. As my old Dad used to say: '...looks lovely in the summer but, oh, if winter comes!'
