Wallpaper Wednesday – December 10th – Barely Lit

If I could choose only one place to spend more time from all of my travels so far it would definitely be the Rockies. Why? Because this place is HUGE!!! And there’s wildlife in every corner, hidden lakes, rivers, and countless look-outs. Pretty much a photographer’s paradise.

This shot was taken on one of our hikes in Jasper. We planned a hiking loop that would take us a few hours to complete and that would pass by a lake towards the end. Arriving at the lake we unlaced our boots and hung out in the evening sun for a while. We both tried getting in the water but, for me, the water was wayyyy to cold.

Right as I put my feet in the water I could feel my blood slowing down and it really felt like my foot was turning into ice. Jade handled the cold better than I but the lake bottom was an indeterminately deep layer of sediment that prevented her from going all the way in.

Refreshed by the little we got wet, we laced up and had started to head out when I noticed a sliver of light that had made it through the trees and onto the tall grass across the lake. The sun was still bright and everything around the grass was still in the shade which made the shot for this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday!
