"It was a bitterly cold night. I woke up before sunrise and could see the overcast weather through the window of my car. In that moment, my never-ending internal debate kicked in and I started asking myself if I should venture outside my warm(ish) and cozy(ish) car trunk. After much mental negotiation I managed to put my boots on and go exploring the surrounding, the exploration quickly turned into a big disappointment. The combination of low clouds and flat light created a less than impressive scenario. I couldn’t help but been disappointed with the bad weather. In that moment, all that I could think was: -‘What a waste of energy and time’.

I returned to my car and started the drive back to the little village to drown my sorrows in a warm cup of coffee. The drive from Medicine Lake to the town of Jasper is very scenic and usually a great location to spot wild-life. Given the early hour in the morning, this otherwise busy road was empty. I kept driving slowly keeping an eye out for wild-life and before running completely out of hope of capturing a nice image during that morning I turned to this view. The fog created a soft light making this mountain range look just magical.

Sometimes, life can be very capricious and throw many curve balls in our way. We just have to be able to adapt to the ever-changing scenarios and keep an eye open to see what will be revealed in the next curve of life."
