Keep going there’s still more!
After two days of good hiking I decided to take this sunset and sunrise pretty easy and focus on the Lake Louise area.
For sunset I stayed in the town of Lake Louise and walk on one of the community trails that followed the river, the goal was to try and find some areas that aren’t tourist spots.
Then in the morning, I made my way up to Lake Louise with the hope that there wouldn’t be to many people so early in the morning and luckily there weren’t very many people and an absoultly beautiful sunrise.
This picture makes me laugh every time I come across it because all I remember is seeing this cloud light up and absolutely booking it to a spot where I could get a good view.

Once I got the last shot and recovered my breath I took some time to look around my new vantage point and caught this little bit of after glow that create really nice separation between the sky and mountain.

In most cases when trying to shoot a reflection, you want smooth conditions, but I think in this case the very soft reflection makes you focus more on the cabin rather than the reflection which usually takes center stage.

It always amazes me how quickly a view changes once the sun starts to come up. This image is very cold but has beautiful lighting on the glacier in the distance.

Where as this image is cold but also has the feeling of a warm sunrise with just the tip of the glacier being covered in warm sunlight. This one won the portfolio spot over the previous one because I the feeling to this one is calming and optimistic, also I prefer having the rocks in the foreground.
