Rundle On Fire | Calgary Adventure Photographer

This morning I left Crossfield about 4:15 am in hopes to get relaxed before shooting sunrise at Vermillion Lakes in Banff. Well I hadn't been there for 5 minutes (6:45) when I saw the sky beginning to light up and the fire-red highlights glancing the bottom of the clouds.

Normally I move around a bit a try something different but as the sun started to hit the horizon the clouds just burst with a brightness that almost looked neon. I just recomposed this shot and took frame after frame in order to get the fast moving clouds in the right spot. Love it.

It's great to have time for my personal work and even better when I can spend it with people who are just as passionate about photography as I am. It's been a few months since I last saw Paul Zizka but every time we get together it's like I never left. He pulls over, parks, says, "hey!" and runs off to start shooting, knowing there will be time to catch up later when we go for coffee. What a great morning!


  1. Every time we shoot together Mother Nature is on our side Kurtis. We should get out more!

    Fantastic shot! That's exactly what it was like.

  2. over filtered over photo-shopped just saying.

  3. Dear anonymous, one filter and no photoshop. But this is what I was going for. You want to see something technically natural? Look at Paul Zizka's stuff. and leave your name if you have the authority to leave that comment.... just saying... (Kurtis)
