Rocky Mountain photography doesn’t stop in the winter, it just gives the chance for a different view! It is also an excellent time to get black and white pictures of Canada and the Canadian Rockies. In response to the Question – What time of year is best for landscape photography in Banff, this reply on Google is quite misleading “There is a consensus of opinion, amongst some landscape photographers, that it is better to hang up your camera during the summer months and wait for the softer light and warmer colours of autumn.” In Banff National Park and around Banff ANYTIME of year is a good time for landscape photography and Winter can be some of the BEST times.
Mountain landscape photography in Banff can be found in some Banff Art stores. My store, with various galleries of landscape art – Landscapes, Panoramas, Black and White, Mountainscapes, Canadian Rockies, Trees, Banff, Photo Devotionals – is online and open 24 hours a day at www.gitaphotos.com! Landscape photography has long been a collector’s and enthusiast’s favoured medium for Canadian Rockies Art. The landscape in Banff National Park is world-renowned and visitors come from all over to get a first-hand view of this World Heritage place.
Pictures of the Canadian Rocky Mountains pop up on Social Media posts continually. Yet, while entertaining to see on the smartphone screen, they cannot engage the viewer in true Canadian Rockies Art the same as a large-size print would do. This is why, should you visit any Banff Art Store – larger prints of the landscape are on display. Admittedly, viewing online is handicapped by the size and resolution of your monitor or device. But, again, the grandeur of the Canadian Rockies and Banff landscape photography, is difficult to engage on any device, smartphone, or Monitor – unless you have a monitor of 21 inches and above. While yes, the mobile device and social media allow one to browse for Banff Landscape Photography and Canadian Rockies Art – the experience is diminished and the engagement handicapped unless, as stated, you switch from Browsing to focused and intentional viewing on a monitor of significant size, that is at least 21 inch.
Search on Google and you will find these replies to some oft-asked questions:
“Why is landscape photography important?”
- “Simply put, landscape photography captures the beauty of nature and the outdoors. These photographs bring the viewers into the scenery and perfectly captures the setting, mood, and feeling in the location.”
“What is interesting about landscape photography?”
- Landscape photography is one area that isn’t limited to perspectives or styles. Panoramas and wide-angle lenses let you see large areas of the environment. Aerial shots from drones or helicopters give you the ability you to add more interest from unfamiliar perspectives.
Also, sociologists, psychologists, and therapists all are of the opinion that being exposed to nature – physically, or from a picture – for a few minutes a day HELPS with overall well-being!
“How does landscape art make you feel?”
- – It’s an experience that makes you feel tiny and insignificant, but also enthralled by the beauty of the scene. For the Romanticists, it usually had an explicit connection to Christianity too; they felt they were experiencing God through the majesty of nature, so in many ways, the sublime was a spiritual experience.
If you have come to the Banff Landscape and visited and viewed throughout the Banff National Park, you may or may not have captured the memory you were emotionally engaged by. Perhaps try to find that memory and emotion in my Rocky Mountain Photography which is for sale, prints SHIPPED FREE – World Wide.
