Bow Lake

It did not look like there was going to be a bright sunrise, but as I was getting closer to Bow Lake, I could see the colours through my rear view mirror. I decided to pull into the lake’s parking lot and quickly made my way to the shore. It was November, I was able to find some open water, then started taking pictures.

Many who see me regularly, will see a pack on my back, does not matter if I'm working or on my days off. Does not matter if it's a cold day middle of the winter or the warm day in the summer, there's a pack on my back. Does not matter if it's raining or minus 30, snowing and wind howling, there's a pack on my back. It does not snow contain my lunch or full of chocolates. It's easier to get around without a pack, it's an easier hike with less weight on my back. But not wanting to miss an opportunity when a moment comes and I need the camera. Few weeks back giving myself lot of time  to get to work, with the camera in the pack, I was able to stop and enjoy the sunrise and take pictures.

If you have some clouds and some clear sky, there is a good chance of an interesting sunrise. Its worth heading to the Vermilion Lakes for, setting up the camera equipment and waiting for the sun to rise. Did not get he reds or the oranges, but got some bright warm yellows, a nice contrast to the cool blue on the ground.

Sunrises are about scattering light. During sunrises and sunsets, sun is low on the horizon, sunlight has to travel through more of the atmosphere. Colours like blues and violets with shorter wavelength get scattered out by small particles, droplets and molecules in the atmosphere. But letting in longer wavelength colours like yellow, orange and red. The clouds catch the longer wavelength colours and reflect them to the ground.

It snowed yesterday and last night, this morning with the sunrise the place looked like a postcard. While making my way to work, I saw the beautiful light toward Mount Rundle, I quickly got my camera out and started to take pictures. After this picture from top of the Bow Bridge, it was time to look for other opportunities.

We have been seing beautiful sunrises the last number of weeks along Vermilion Lakes, this was one of them. I always look for a different place to take the picture from, not always possible. But this time it worked out. Sunrises are little more special when there is a reflection in the water.

Until next moment,

Was back at the Vermilion Lakes to take pictures of Mount Rundle during a sunrise. I never get tired of taking pictures there, knowing I will always come back with something I like. Most of the landscapes pictures I have taken there have been during the mornings. The calm water, Mount Rundle and colourful sky go well together, no exception the last time I was out there.

I was bit under the weather, but decided to bundle up and head outside anyway. With me taking too long to decide if I should go, as soon I stepped outside I could see the warm colours in the clouds. Kept my fingers crossed, hoping to make it to the Vermilion Lakes before it was too late. With the heavy winds, there was only one place where I was going to find still water. It was a small area, but that was all I needed. When I saw all the clouds on fire, I forgot about the aching joints and started clicking the camera. It was a morning to remember.

Until next moment,

Sunrise

I was on my way to a small road trip, but before I got to the road, I decided to drop by the Vermilion Lakes. The sunrise was about make its way and there was a possibility for a good image. I stopped over at the 2nd Vermilion and set myself up. Up came the Sun and out came the warm colours, the water was just still enough to make a good image. Then it was time to go for that road trip.

Until next moment,
