Shortly after a helicopter had dropped us off in the middle of the Tombstone range of Canada's Yukon Territory, and we had begun hiking towards our first overnight camping site, we noticed ominous clouds and lightning quickly approaching us. Sure enough, within minutes we were painfully pelted by a wall of sleet. As if our prayers were answered, we were able to hide, wet and freezing, behind a large boulder.
As soon as the storm had passed, we realized the potential for great light, grabbed our camera gear and headed off to capture some potentially beautiful light. And beautiful it was!
As I was photographing this range of ragged peaks, already clothed in beautiful light, some remnant clouds swooped down from above, transforming this scene into otherworldly beauty. Fortunately I was able to capture it, before the last remnants of the storm quickly disappeared.
Thanks for looking!
