Autumn at Wedge Pond

(please click on any image to go to a higher resolution version)

The morning was cold as I walked down to Wedge Pond on Friday.  No frost, but very chilly under the clear skies.  I woke early so I was there before the skies had started to brighten.  The only sounds were the splash of the occasional fish jumping and bull elk bugling challenges nearby in the forest.  It was a special moment to take in.  In the darkness the exposures ranged up to five minutes to show the pre-dawn scene as below.  The slowly lightening sky to the east reflected on the upper flanks of the mountain.

As the sun approached, the birds started chattering and a few other photographers showed up for the alpen glow and then first light on Mount Kidd.  Kananaskis lived up to expectations again.  It was lovely to be on the lake’s shore for the morning with the autumn colours coming in.
