The Approach - Banff National Park, Alberta

Timing is everything in photography. Waking up at 4:00 am, I set out for a sunrise shot of Bow Lake Banff, Alberta. I only had a couple of minutes to wade through chest high snow from the parking area to the lake before the sun came up. Just by chance, the minute I made it to a little footbridge at the lake a skier was crossing the lake to head off into the backcountry at the perfect spot, at the perfect time for me to quickly snap this image.
