The Three Sisters are an iconic landmark in Canmore and have been featured a number of times on this blog. It is always a good feeling seeing the Three Sisters and knowing that I’m not too far from home.
I haven’t been getting out shooting much lately, so I dived into the archive to look for gems that I previously passed over. I found this shot of the cat which looked crooked. After straightening the frame and making it pop just a little, I thought it turned out well.
A few hours after sunrise and the sun peeks through an opening in the clouds. The light rakes a path across the face of the mountain, which was dusted with a light snowfall from the night before. The foreground trees are still below the snow level this early in the season.
Time to get the sunglasses out, with the sun staring down the road right at you. The low angle of the rays are lighting the clouds from the bottom and the distant clouds are casting a shadow on the nearer upper sky.
I have a fascination with skies and clouds that a sunrise or sunset makes more intense. I love to watch what happens to the light when it moves across the sky instead of coming down on you. The color and richness of the light intensifies at the edges of the day.
