It was Awesome to be Playing in my Big Backyard this weekend in Canmore, AB. As usual I got carried away with the shots... good thing I brought my headlamp for the way down.
I shot this wonderful sunset from 2,407m from the top of Ha Ling Peak with my Nikon D800E and 24-70mm 2.8 lens : f/8 at 1/2 sec at 100 ISO. My saturation on my picture control was cranked. The dynamic range of the Nikon D800E never ceases to amaze me!!

An Incredible Moutain Scene over Three Sisters Mountain Village. On this particular evening I grabbed my camera and went out for a hike in my Big Backyard of Canmore, Alberta. On my way back I noticed that the clouds were interesting and anticipated a beautiful sunset. I waited for that sweet-light time where the suns rays were bending causing the colour temperature to change and giving that Amazing Alpenglow warmth. I seized the opportunity and the moral of this story is when your inner voice whispers to you to bring your camera... always listen to it.
