Notes

This shot was purely unplanned, and I almost missed the light. I was driving by when the reflection caught my eye and I had my brother pull the car to the side of the road so I could quickly take this photo.

Description

Mount Rundle is perhaps the most recognized mountain in the Canadian Rockies and has probably been on more calendars than any other. The viewpoint from which most photographs are taken is five kilometers to the west with the Vermilion Lakes in the foreground. In this photo, I captured the mountain just before sunset as the sun bathed the peak in orange, reflecting the light into the Vermillion Lakes below.
