Mountain on Fire

Back to Quarry Lake in Canmore for my post today. While not a shot of the actual lake, this was the view off in the distance that I was treated with as the sun started to peek over the horizon. The glow on those mountains was out of this world – seeing colour like that makes getting up early for sunrise seem worth it every time.

Equipment:
– Canon EOS 50D
Canon 24-105mm f/4L

Most excellent! Isolating these peaks gives off so much more drama to the image! Well done!
