Photographer's Note

About five minutes before I got to Second Vermilion Lake with my cousin (a fellow landscape photographer who was up visiting from Utah), the sun disappeared behind a bank of clouds. Up to that point, it had been shining brightly on the mountains. Now the peaks were all dark. But hey, at least we got a little color in the clouds.

After about 15 minutes, he said, "Well, I'm ready to call it good whenever you are," and started to pack up his gear. "I think we missed the sunset," he added. I checked the time; it was only 8:55. Sunset wasn't until 9:17. I said, "Give it a few more minutes. We'll pack up when we're sure the sun has actually set."

Ten minutes later, a faint glimmer of light appeared on Mount Rundle. It grew and grew, until it became a narrow band as the sun broke through the clouds and began its final descent. We got some of our favorite pictures of the two-day shoot that evening. Patience is a virtue.
