Lake Minnewanka Trail
- I’d had a pensive couple of days with some moments of high emotion. I’d decided a day ago that I ought to take a moment for myself, one that will hopefully remind me how fortunate I am regardless of anything else going on in life. I didn’t anticipte that this sunrise to be quite so soul-stirring as it was. And I certainly didn’t expect to have it entirely to myself. It felt ethereal and magic and left me shook up in an unsettled but wondrous way for the remainder of the day.
- Sometimes, when you are surrounded by a collection of great shots, turning around and lookng up can give a whole new look to your surroundings. That’s what happened here! While my buddy Jeff and I were focused on the mountains directly ahead of us, I turned 180 degrees and saw the first sliver of sun hitting the mountain behind us. I quickly turned around to capture the moment, and it was moment because the sun disappeared very quickly… I think I was lucky.
- My buddy Jeff and I tried to catch the “blue hour” at Banff yesterday. The clouds got in the way but not before we were able to catch a hint of emerging sunshine contrasted with the blue of the mountains before us. For me, I wished the moment lasted longer; it is quite interesting standing on a frozen lake surrounded by these majestic peaks.
