Snowpatch Sunrise
Photo By Tim Banfield

  • Title: Snowpatch Sunrise
  • State/Province/Region: British Columbia
  • Country: Canada
  • Nearest Area: Bugaboo Provincial Park
  • Nearest Town: Golden, BC
  • Brief Directions: Location: Bugaboo Provincial Park is located in southeastern B.C., halfway between Golden and Radium Hot Springs, and west of Highway 95. Access to the park is via a good gravel road, open late spring through late fall, that begins at Brisco, 27 kilometres north of Radium Hot Springs on Highway 95. This 45-kilometre road into the park is frequently travelled by logging trucks, so drivers should exercise extreme caution at all times. Park visitors should park their vehicles in the public lot and not in that of the Bugaboo Lodge (Canadian Mountain Holidays). Visitors are recommended to protect their vehicle with chicken wire to deter small animals from chewing on wires and tires. * taken from Alpine Club of Canada website
  • Notes: We scrambled up East Post Spire. Not easy for someone without climbing or mountaineering experience. If you have limited experience I would recommend a harness and a rope as you can rappel from the summit to avoid an uneasy downclimb.
  • GPS Longitude: 116
  • GPS Latitude: 50
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: This is a sunrise shot of Snowpatch Spire in Bugaboo Provincial Park. We woke up at 430am and scrambled to the summit of East Post Spire in the dark to get the shot
  • Gear: Canon 50d, 17-40mm Canon L lense, light weight tripod and Joby ballhead. Plus all the camping gear to get to Applebee Campground

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
