Storm Mountain

Each mountain is unique and different as any other being or thing I encounter. They have character, they have strengths and they have their weakness. I have spent many hours sitting back and trying to figure out how ice and other elements have shaped the various peaks I pass by foot or by car. Watch them as they show their different personalities at various times of the days, weeks, months and years. 

 Over the last few years I have been locating a location in the valley where I could take a picture of Storm Mountain with a reflection in the water. Few months ago I found that location, but that picture will have to wait until warm weather arrives. Today I'm sharing an image taken on a cool morning with the early light and half a moon high above.

Until next moment,

Storm Mountain

I was on the highway headed west early in the morning, when I noticed the moon in the sky. Still some time before the morning light would be touching the mountains in the Bow Valley. The sky was clear, so I wanted the half moon to play role in the picture. Got off the highway 1 and took the bridge at Castle Junction to continue west on the 1A. After going for few more kilometers I was seeing what I wanted. The moon was over Storm Mountain and the mountain was lit up with the morning light. 

 Stepped out of the warm car to find a spot which would give me a look above the trees, luck except for few trees. As the Robins and Juncos sang their morning songs, I was able to take the attached picture of Storm Mountain. Named by George Mercer (one of Canada's great scientist) Dawson, who also gave the same name to a mountain in Kananaskis. Both named because number of storm clouds were seen on the summit.

Until next moment,
