The summit of Mt Assiniboine in Southeastern B.C had been cloaked in a heavy fog leading up to sunrise the morning I shot this. Fortunately, it started to burn away as the first rays of the day hit the summit of the parks' namesake peak. I was drawn to the simplicity of the repeating triangles as I anxiously waited for more fog to clear away and reveal the details of the valley, and was quite happy to have come away with this scene
