Captured on a frigid morning in Banff National Park (10 degrees below zero), this image still holds as the most amazing scene I have witnessed to date. The sky was completely overcast just minutes before the shot and I almost packed up to leave until the brilliant display of color and beams behind Mt Rundle appeared before my eyes. Later that day I heard there was a grizzly roaming the same area the night before; glad he decided not to show up during the shoot.
