After about 50km of heavy pack hiking in 2 days, the final 1 hour haul up to the "Nublet" in BC's Assiniboine provincial park took the last bit of energy I had left. After over an hour of trying to find an interesting comp I settled with this, and posted up for sunset. My buddy Steve and I started cursing due to the lack of any sort of light show, so I went up to his tripod area and checked out what he came up with. As we talked I notice some pink starting to form where no clouds were before and told him to "GET READY!" I then sprinted with my bum foot back to my still set up camera, and rattled off the best shot of my trip.

Such a sick place and I'll definitely be back. Preferably taking the helicopter in and saving my energy next time!

Thanks for looking! Best results if viewed twice daily, and on a calibrated monitor of course

Beautiful! I'd love to see this spot in person--but I think I'd have to go the helicopter route. Glad you hiked in and showed us the view.

Turned out fantastic buddy. Well done. I still can't believe we actually got a shot from here. What a way to end a sweet (but painful) weekend.

Thanks a lot for the nice comments and 500px internet points everyone! I recognized a bunch of your names on there Hopefully by next week I'll have finished a few of the twilight shots I got also.

Absolutely gorgeous!

However, I think it's definitely better if you view this three times or more per day.

Wow, I feel lucky to see such images, knowing the chances of seeing this in person is so remote..

Already commented on 500px but great stuff man! Like the comp.. works well.

Was the hike out pretty? Really wanted to do this one this year but just couldn't fit it in.. next year hopefully. Did you head out there yourself?
