Mount Lady MacDonald

Originally I had not planned to do this hike but as I was leaving the hostel I made the sudden decision to climb this mountain in the dark! This trail is much easier to hike than Grotto Mountain but there was more elevation gain and a real chance of catching an epic sunrise.

About an hour into the hike I stopped to get to get my first pictures of the day and discovered that I had forgotten to bring an SD card for my Nikon, In most cases this wouldn’t be a big issue because I still have one functional camera, the problem comes in when I’m trying to shoot this video and I constantly have to move the single card between my cameras.

Even with the inconveniences of the single card this turned out to be an amazing sunrise and over a very successful sunrise hike.

Just in case you were wondering, yes, the colors were enhanced. I generally like to keep the image looking as real to the scene as possible but in this case I wanted to recreate the scene the way it had looked about 30 minutes before.

Much like the previous day, the third sister just didn’t want to come out to the show! The nice part was that the clouds and warm sunlight worked together to frame the first sister perfectly.

The heavy clouds seamed to be getting stuck right on the tops of the peaks making it look like they where starting to float away. I used black and white on this shot to really bring attention to how big the clouds where.

Another short and easy hike for an attempt at some good sunset shots. Sadly since doing Grotto Mountain the weather only cleared up slightly. Even though this is an easy hike it has some very good view points and if you are out in Canmore I would highly suggest taking a stroll.

Waiting as patiently as possible for the third sister to show her self, I must have sat in this spot for over half an hour with my finger on the shutter release just waiting for that perfect moment. Sadly it never fully cleared but this was the point when it was at it’s most visible.

Grotto Mountain

Being one of my first early morning hikes I wasn’t to sure what to show in the video because the trail up Grotto Mountain would be quite difficult in day light let alone with only a head lamp.

I can’t say I’m overly proud of the images from this trip but it was good practice for Mount Lady MacDonald…

I quickly realized during this hike that I wasn’t going to be getting a good sunrise, so instead I made use of some of the moody clouds and the near invisible three sisters to show just what I was dealing with.

This was the only light sign of sunrise I saw all morning so I figured it was worth a shot. I really like how even with the super thick clouds the sun was able to just break through.

Goat Creek

Due to a serve wind warning I had to change my plans from doing Miners Peak to hiking the Goat Creek trail. I have to say I’m very glad I did given that the next 2 days of this trip involved lots of climbing.

This is a very popular trail in the summer but in the winter it’s beautiful and empty! It also has some amzing views of the back end of Mount Rundle.

There’s not really anything exciting to say about this shot, I crossed a bridge an thought the river looked pretty cool so I took the shot. Nice and simple.

The harsh mid-day light on this peak seamed really interesting at the time and I liked how the trees kind of funnel your eye towards the peak.
