In this video, Mike Paterson from Paterson Photography Fine Art embarks on a winter photo shoot in the picturesque Waterton Lakes National Park. While the park is a popular destination in warmer weather, it experiences a quieter ambiance during the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Nevertheless, the beauty of the park remains just as captivating in the offseason as it is in the summer.
Accompanied by his trusty White Turtle van, he explores the park to discover potential photographic subjects. The unusually warm temperatures have prevented many lakes, streams, and ponds from freezing, presenting a unique opportunity for him to capture the mesmerizing interplay of ice and water.
