Near Morant's Curve

Near Morant's Curve
The railway track, river and closest trees seem to be level in this photo, but the distant, sloping hillside looks "wrong". This was taken from Morant's Curve, which is a famous spot along the Canadian Pacific Railway. It's located on the western end of the Bow Valley Parkway near Lake Louise. We were lucky that a train happened to come by - many people sit and wait for a long time for that special photo. Taken on 15 May 2014, on the return journey to Calgary from a two-day trip to the mountains with friends, Cathy and Terry.

"The Canadian Pacific Railway had a staff photographer, Nicholas Morant, who took many photos of CP in the middle of the 20th century. One location he is well known for is this spot, and many CPR promotional materials feature his photos from this location." From blog.traingeek.ca/2010/08/morants-curve.html
