Highway 1A

This is the old and scenic highway to Canmore and Banff. It use to be called Morley Trail as it runs right through Morley a first nations settlement within the Stoney Indian reserve. The speed limit in slow since the road is very narrow and has many twists and turns.

The newer highway which is just to the south is call the Trans Canada Highway or Highway 1. The Trans Canada Highway will take you from coast to coast in Canada. I've been fortunate to have travelled it from Montreal to Vancouver Island.

Hi Janice,

What a great view! It's surprisingly snow free for early February. I guess that I don't use the old highways enough. Thanks for presenting the former Morley Trail, and reminding me that there's more driving available then just on main highways. Your trip on the Trans Canada Highway reminded me of a train trip I took once, when I went from Vancouver to Montreal. TFS.

See you,

  • Great

Hi Janice.

Superb shot with a fine framing of the concept.
The lights add the beauty !!
All the best.


Hi Janice,

What a great landscape and view of the highway.
Great light and a nice POV. Congrats.

I made a WS for your picture.

Best regards,

Hello Janice,
Beautiful place and composed very well although I would crop sky a little because its colour isn't too interesting. Nice visible far mountains. Photo is too soft without sharpening.
Regards, Pawel

Hi MCF Janice,

Excellent vantage point for this POV, looks like a perfect corner to drift around :). The mountains look very nice, good decision with the crop. The blue tone in the sky is awesome. Well taken MF!
Have a nice day!
