Vermilion one in a by Millsy1 Vermilion one in a by Millsy1
So I randomly woke up at 3am today, only because I had the heat turned up a little too high.

I could have done like I normally do, open the window a bit, roll over and go back to sleep. Instead I looked out the window, saw clear skies and said "Oh what the hell, I'm going to drive to Banff for sunrise"

This was the result. It was -20C, felt like -30C.


Very worth it.

Beautiful shot. I'm a bit surprised that Vermillion Lakes hasn't frozen over yet. I'll be hopefully getting out there once or twice over the Christmas break. I hope my results are even half as great as yours. :)

Thank you very much! :)

This spot should be open most of the winter I think, there is a spring that keeps feeding the lake there, so it's keeping the water open. Which is really nice for shots like this!
