This Juniper Tree has stood for decades presiding over Banff’s Surprise Corner. It is the anchor and embellishes the view that all come to enjoy! If this tree were not here the view and the experience would be diminished!
This tree – weather beaten , naked of leaves, stripped of it’s bark – still adds beauty and context to the Landscape after years of service to the air and lake it stands beside.
Sometimes referred to as “Rocky Mountain Gold” Larches draw great admiration in the Fall with their lustrous color. Yet in winter, without the Golden needles – it still adds beauty to the land.

Ron Hallam Photographer Bio
I live in Banff,Alberta Canada – a National Park, World Heritage Site and fortunately my home! And what an opportunity this affords one. My creative outlet being Landscape Photography , makes Banff a veritable , never ending source of subject matter.Being in the midst of this place I get to go out and capture the incredible mixture of light and natural environment subject matter this place provides. I readily admit I am spoiled, with Banff National Park as my back yard, I just leave my house and walk, ski or ride into this wilderness in barely minutes! The wonders of this place, from a simple days walk to extended trips, provide a Landscape Photographer a never ending, always intriguing and deeply engaging array of subject matter, light , mood and moments to create , then express and hopefully engage the viewer with that moment captured “from an infinity of other possible sights”.( John Berger, Art Critic and Poet)
Dear to me and my work is a the special Gallery (found on my website) called the Cause Collection, is dedicated to working with Cause Canada an N.G.O. ( Non Goverment Organization) which does charity relief work in West Africa and Central America. Their offices are in Canmore, a town just outside the Park, and my aim in this Gallery of Images ( but also with ALL images in ALL Galleries) is to help provide funding for their programs which are not receiving the support once available. Featuring the Cause Gallery is a way of bringing attention to the need. I hope your “eye and emotions” will be caught and that you understand that your image purchase will help support and sustain the less fortunate.
