Backlit Queen

July 22, 2014

Here is a truly special moment captured during sunset in the Canadian Rockies. The beautiful Sunburst Peak draped in a blanket of backlight. No doubt Mount Assiniboine is the king of the area, however being hidden in clouds gave the Queen a chance to put on a magnificent show of her own!This image encompasses a massive 180 degree field of view, to capture a unique angle and to show the true scale of the landscape. I wish I could say I found this spot deliberately, but honestly I tripped and feel into this small pit by accident. Luckily not ruining the snow on the rocks surrounding me!
