Keep going there’s still more!
It’s official, I am done with winter…
As you may have pickup on in the video, this trip really did not go as expected. The plan was to climb up tent ridge and wait till sunset then hike back down and find somewhere to camp for the night.
Once I got high enough to see the ridge, it quickly became clear that I shouldn’t try to get to the top due to the pretty intense avalanche risk.
Long story short, I started making my way back to Canmore hoping that something would catch my attention enough to make it worthwhile to hang out till sunset. By the time I reached the end of the lakes, heavy clouds had moved in and made it not worth hanging around for sunset. Overall it was a good day, and I’m very surprised how well the black and white photos turned out!
I took this shot purely because I’d put in effort to get to this spot, that’s not to say it’s a bad shot, I actually quite like the lighting when the image is in black and white.
