Weekend Reflections: puddle art and more

Posted for Weekend Reflections
hosted by James in California, where he has proven again today he is the master of the unexpected reflection.
These photos were taken at Alberta's Bow River, where the Bow Falls come crashing down so bright-whitely as to be reflected even in the rough waters below. I was there this week with my dog Lindy and our Dutch blogging friend Mara, of Weighty Matters.
Dick and I first met Mara in Amsterdam this spring, and were delighted to hear she would be visiting Alberta, but sorry she's here while Dick's away on business. However, Lindy proved an able substitute for her daddy.
The Bow Falls are in one of the most famous places (if not the most famous place) in Alberta: Banff National Park. The falls are very close to the renowned ski town of Banff, a must-see on our quick tour of the Canadian Rockies on Wednesday.

Looking downriver, the sky was covered in white cloud, making this mountain look like a cut-out.

More beautiful photos of Banff National Park, reflections and all... and a cute one of Lindy.

Question, are there no flights from Amsterdam to Calgary? That's a looong drive from Edmonton after a loooonger flight!

I love the shot of Lindy! All the others just lead the reader along to this as the high point!
