Clear Day in Calgary-City in the Canadian Rockies

Hello IFC! Today I decided to take the the TBM out for a spin and fly a fun and scenic route to Banff. Banff is a beautiful town located in the middle of the Canadian Rockies and is home to one of the most beautiful lakes Iโ€™ve ever seen, Lake Louise . I discovered Banff a few months ago, and ever since, I have wanted to go so badly. But until then, I can fly to, and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Banff in IF. Hope yโ€™all enjoy these pictures!

This man is now my favorite. I have never seen Banff on here.

BTW, you shouldโ€™ve took off from CYBW, that is where most GA aircraft are.

Nice photos love the moon shot. Wish I could get moon shots but my moons are never that big

You have to all the way back; extremely distant from your object. When you zoom towards your objects, itโ€™s like the moon is itโ€™s actual size.

Nice pics! Banff is wonderful, Iโ€™ve been there myself! Here are my pictures from Lake Louise and Lake Moraine this past summer:
Lake Louise (I later got to go canoeing on it, was very cool)

Lake Moraine (sorry about the quality my computer has decided to be annoying)


Youโ€™re also my favorite.

Thank you! Basically how I do it is, I use free cam, fly far away from my plane, and line up my plane with the moon, then I tap my screen to zoom in and get the angle I want, and then screenshot it๐Ÿ™‚

Oh ok I didnโ€™t know that lol. Yea Iโ€™m pretty surprised Banff hasnโ€™t been shown on here before. Thanks!

Thank you!

No way! Youโ€™re so lucky. I have always wanted to canoe on Lake Louise. What an absolutely beautiful place for sure. Thank you!
