This image was taken at marvellous Emerald Lake on an Easter evening. Middle of the spring is usually the end of a busy tourist season at Emerald Lake. I wasn’t expecting much as I walked on empty trails covered in melting snow looking for a vantage point to set my camera as the skies started to come alive. In just few seconds the scene have exploded dramatically into a vibrant beauty and in less than a minute it was over.

Calgary Olympic Park still has decent groomed snow despite warm temperatures since february. Also if you come in the evening you can ski for as little as $9. Yes $9!
Some of the guys I caught at a terrain park
This is the first time I can remember when mountain valleys were so clear of ice and snow in March. Emily and I took a short excursion to K Country just to check some favourite spots.
Some of the snow remains north of Mt Kid.
