Photographer's Note

Castle Mountain, in Banff National Park. This is one of my favourite mountains, and yet I had very few pictures of it that I liked. Recently I had the opportunity to travel there in the early winter and get the shot that I've been looking for, but was impossible to take in the summer months. This was taken right at dawn, with the first sun just hitting the peaks. In the summer, the sunrise is far around toward the north, and the sunlight would fall on the other side of the mountain, leaving this side in shadow until late morning. The pool of water in the foreground is actually frozen, which is why the reflection seems a little fuzzy.
