Morning in Banff:

Fantastically beautiful blue sky day today, so had a walking and photographing day. More photos here on Flickr

Last night at the festival was "Radical Reels", a mix of films which were mainly the high octane type of stuff that's quite a contrast to ours. My favourite was a film about a freebase soloist called Dean Potter, who as well as being an astonishingly talented climber must also be a bit barking - soloing the North Face of the Eiger in order to jump off strapped to a tiny parachute? Fly or die indeed.

Monday night was really interesting, five short films by young Canadian film makers who had spent the summer based at Parks Canada field sites in order to make films about what outdoor Canada means to them. Five quite different interpretations, and plenty of talent on display.

Tonight is "The Snow Show" but I'm missing that as tomorrow, Friday and Saturday are going to be full on days and evenings on film and book fest so I need a night off!
