Another gorgeous day! Instead of taking the boat out to the lake like we did the day prior, we thought of hiking Banff's Tunnel Mountain area, visit the Hoodoos, hike the trails beyond Bow Falls, and then spend the later afternoon in Lake Vermillion unntil sunset. We've tried this several times in the past hoping we could catch the perfect moment, the right lighting conditions for a perfect moment of Mount Rundle sunset bliss.

Around 7:30PM, as the sun started to set beyond the mountains, Mount Rundle started to glow purplish pink. I lost my tripod base plate while we were hiking several hours prior, and now I am faced with this sinking feeling that I might miss this opportunity without a usable tripod. The good thing, I do not give up that easily. So I braced my camera as steady as I could, held my breath, opened the shutter a little longer, and took my shots. I was even surprised that the sunset thing only lasted for about half a minute before it started to lose color. Good thing, I already took my shots while the color was still intensifying!

While Nora took a quick nap, I found my quiet place for solitude in this little area just below a roadside with standing water so still you could see anything mirrored, so quiet you can hear a pin drop.

No breeze, no falling leaves, just me and my cameras with telephoto and ultra-wide lenses!  Even the lone duck didn't mind my presence at all! Awesome!
