I spent lots of time in Canmore as a young lad. My grandparent’s lived out there for years, and visiting was always a highlight. Since then, Canmore has changed quite a bit. The highway leading into town is now coated in hotels, condos have seemed to spring out of nowhere, and loads of restaurants and gift shops speckle main street.
Still, I’m always very impressed when I come into Canmore, Canada I love how it still manages to feel local despite the fact that so many tourists are here in the area. The town, however, does somehow seem to attract the same type of people that live there. At every café, restaurant, or shop, the people around you feel like locals from Canmore, and with a busy tourist town right next door like Banff, that’s a pretty cool feeling.
Anyways, I was in Canmore for a couple days, so I went out shooting quite a bit. One morning I headed out to Gap Lake, the next up to the Nordic Center area, then I shot an evening down on the Bow River. These are the results.
