This one comes from last weeks trip to the Coast Mountains of British Columbia with +Adam Gibbs. After a moderately strenuous ski into the hut in Marriott Basin we settled in with some hot drinks and relaxation, the sky had turned cloudy and it looked like we might not get any photos that first night. However just before sunset the clouds began to thin and the sky filled with color. It was a mad dash on skis to find some spots which would offer good compositions.

For about forty five minutes or so the sky exploded in a vast array of colors and tones. Sometimes light would hit the distant peaks while other times they would be in shade and the clouds would reflect a warm glow similar to light on sandstone walls in the Southwest.
