Vermillion Lakes is one of the best spot's in Banff to catch a sunrise or sunset depending on the season. Although it's one of the most popular locations for photographers, there are so many different areas around the lakes that you'll never feel like it's too crowded. Mount Rundle can be photographed during anytime during the year, but be sure to check for ideal conditions to capture that perfect shot. Being so close to town, be sure to grab a bite to eat or a cold one afterwards!
