Ice Road Sunset

Ice Road Sunset

 

I saw some of the most amazing sunsets and sunrises in the Northwest Territories. The sun is not very high in the sky at this time of year and the low angle gives you a long time to see the sun come up or go down.  Shades of pink and ochre transition to azure and deep blue in the clear cold evening. As I recall it was about –25º Celsius when the exposure was made.

When you are travelling on a frozen lake the landscape is basically flat. On the land there are low hills and ridges that vary as you move along. The light is amazingly subtle in the north, with pastel shades coloring the sky.

In the north the “Blue Hour” lasts a long time. You can see the glow coming at the edge of the horizon long before the actual sunrise.

Fog On The Flats

Fog On The Flats

 

I don’t know if it is fog or just low clouds but it was hanging over the Kicking Horse Valley near Field, BC in Yoho National Park, but it sure looked interesting.

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.
