A surprising place to find great pictures

I have a few Pinterest pages so I get a lot of suggestion from those people with pictures of mountains, especially the Canadian Rockies.  Sometimes it seems like 40% of them are Moraine Lake, which is fine (it’s quite spectacular) but usually what I’m looking for is a place I haven’t already painted. When I started looking for pictures of Bow Lake, I was surprised they were few and far between until I thought of looking on Google Streetview. The ‘street’ that the Google camera was viewing in this case is the Icefields Parkway (one of my favourite streets) and here is a link to my favourite Streetview on the Parkway.
