here's a typical road view in jasper. this route will take you to one of the must see lakes inside the national park, the maligne lake.

on most of my shots in jasper, i was exposing for the distant mountains, causing the foreground (usually the trees) to be somewhat darker. the exposure/tonal range is just too wide to be captured by the camera, not to mention digitally. i should have bracketed my shots, and i should have captured important sceneries in RAW format, to allow more room for post-processing adjustment in exposure. but i was overwhelmed, and was too excited to think about it. i also have a polarizer with me, but only managed to use it once or twice on our many stops. i'll try to contain my excitement, and stay calm next time =)
