Morants Curve

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 25 September 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Morants Curve is a site made famous by photographer Nicholas Morant. It offers panoramic views of the railway lines where they follow a curve in the Bow River. The lovely mountains provide the perfect back drop. This spot is one of the most photographed places in Banff National Park. We timed it just right and got to watch as the train passed in front of Mt. Temple, Fairview Mountain, and the other peaks of the Bow Valley.

The trains are so long that it would be difficult to miss his image
That said, yours is very successful and you have calculated the right timing

These boxcars seem so out of place in this wildness setting. You had a nice vantage point and exercised good patience it seems
