Athabasca Beauty

Athabasca Beauty

Alpenglow on Mount Athabasca and Mount Andromeda along the Icefield Parkway from few days ago. The smoky sky from the forest fire was covering most of the area during my recent trip to the Canadian Rockies. Lucky enough that there are a few window of the sky clearing up for some beautiful lights!

Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Arc Above O’Hara

Milky way above Lake O’Hara. The most iconic spot at this beautiful place. Moon was about to set behind me with the last bit of moon lights on Mount Huber and Glacier Peak in the middle. Aurora also decided to come out and play behind Wiwaxy Peak on the left towards the northern direction

Schaffer Galaxy

Milky way above Mount Schaffer at Lake O’Hara, Yoho National Park, British Columbia. The last night I stayed at Lake O’Hara and I left the Lake O’Hara circut trail night hike on the very last night at I knew I’ll be super tired after three full days of hiking to different peak within the area. And it was a great choice as I didn’t went far on this very last night and have to call it the end of the night only around 2am 🙂

Lake McArthur Sunset

It was the last sunset I stayed at Yoho National Park back in June 2015. I spent the afternoon with my friend at Lake McArthur and have the whole area all to ourself. It was a beautiful and peaceful evening.

An Unforgettable Night

A Night that I will never ever forget in my life. A lot of first time happened to me on this beautiful night. First time sleeping on top of a mountain without a tent, first time spending a night at 8000 feet above sea level, and first time watching aurora dancing all night right above my head. And of course it will have to combined with the first 2 conditions in order to have nothing between you and the night skies!! 🙂 And yes. I took another shot of this very same spot on the next morning and posted it a while ago already!! (If the composition looks familiar to you!!)

Hope you enjoy it!!
Have a great weekend!!

Cascade Lakes are the last lakes (as it contains a few small lakes) on the Opabin Plateau before running downstream to Lake O’Hara. The bright lights from the northern direction on the horizon is the last little bit of aurora from this particular night. Color started fading away as the morning is approaching quickly!

Hope you enjoy it!!
