Beautiful Banff in Calgary, Alberta, Canada
My photo captures the snowy landscape of Banff, Alberta, Canada in the winter. I live fairly close by in Calgary, where the mountains can be seen on the horizon line. Calgarians love travelling frequently to Banff to enjoy the view and stroll through the local shops. Seeing the mountains from Calgary always reminds me to get outside and enjoy nature, and to travel to Banff as often as I can! When I took this photo, I couldn’t believe that I had a postcard-esque landscape right in front of me. It’s even more beautiful in person than it is in the pictures. The mountains make you feel so small.

Alberta is a beautiful place. The landscapes across the entire province are breathtaking. Banff, in particular, boasts towering mountain views; It is a cozy, quaint little town that’s a pleasure to be in. Visiting Banff melts stress and seems to dissolve time, too.
A perfect day in Banff starts with getting a warm beverage and strolling up and down the streets in the village. Next, a ride on the ski lift is a must. Once at the top, taking a long walk reveals the stunning landscapes the mountains and valleys create. It’s gorgeous any time of year, but I particularly love seeing it covered in snow.
The best thing about this spot is the perspective it brings. The mountain views and vast amount of trees around make you feel so small and get you thinking about how big the world really is. It’s wonderful to just stare out at the landscapes and breathe. Banff makes me feel grateful just to be alive and to see such beauty in the world.
The only negative thing I can think of regarding Banff is that it’s expensive to live there. If you’re visiting, the worst thing is having to leave!
A lot of people thing Albertans are all cowboys. So the most surprising thing about this place to an outsider would be discovering that Banff and nearby cities like Calgary are actual cities, not farmland!
If Banff where a person, it would have to be the classic grandmother figure with hot cocoa and fresh warm cookies at hand.
