My favourite place to paint

Lake O’Hara

It’s been almost six years since the last time I visited this glorious hanging valley in Yoho National Park.  On that occasion I painted a series of sketches on the Opabin Plateau (shown at about the midpoint of the right side of this picture) and have been painting Lake O’Hara from time to time ever since – in hopeful anticipation of going there again some day, ideally at that magical time of year when the larch are at their spectacular best...  It is just about impossible to book the very limited accommodation during that period, or even get in on the quota of day-trippers.
