Keep going there’s still more!

Spray Lakes

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!

This has to be my favorite spot in the Spray Valley, the reflection is just so amazing and the isolated peak makes for an awesome subject.
