Still Life: Jasper in June

This is a collection of photos taken in Jasper National Park, around Patricia Lake and along the Athabasca River. Spring this year in Jasper had a beautiful start with sunshine and clear skies before the inevitable June rain arrived. Flora and fauna sprouted up with the sunshine and welcomed the rain. The rivers and lakes swelled with spring runoff, but Patricia Lake always seems to manage to stay a beautiful clear blue.
