Archive: Canadian Rockies trip 2005

October 2005


A 17 day trip to the Canadian Rockies in late 2005 was booked. This was an escorted tour and covered Vancouver, Victoria, Jasper, Kamloops, Hope, Kelonowa, Banff, Whistler and a few other places that I can’t remember the names of.

This was my first few months with my first ever Digital SLR – the Canon 350D (also known in other parts of the world as the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT in North America and the Canon EOS Kiss Digital N in Japan. This was an 8 megapixel entry-level camera and was what I decided to buy being more familiar with Canon products.

At the time, I was extremely snap happy and photographed everything and anything. The trip was a great opportunity to get to use my new camera and photograph many subjects across the country. I had even bought a new Sigma 10-20mm for the wide angle shots just a few days before leaving.

As most new starters begin, I spent the majority of my time with the camera in auto but was reasonably pleased with some of the photos I took.

It would be nice to do this trip again but this time by driving it myself and taking my time. Our trip was “on the bus, off the bus, there’s a lake – you have 30 minutes, back on the bus, next location”. Despite it being a well planned trip and no detail left uncatered for, it would have been nice to spend more time in the better places.

A small selection of these photos can be found below.
