Fire in the Sky - Canmore, Alberta

Few times in my life have I ever witnessed a sunrise as colourful as it was on this particular morning. I remember frantically driving down the highway as the sky lit up. Thankfully I was near an area I had scouted a few weeks prior so I pulled over and raced down to the river's edge. Unfortunately I just couldn't make the composition work from the riverbank. With only a few minutes left before the sunrise would be over, I made a quick call to get really wet. To get this shot I had to wade out into the water almost to my waist in a heavy current. I had to fight to keep my tripod locked onto the bottom of the river while not get swept away myself. As I look back, I am thankful I got the shot but oh my, that was one cold morning.
