I have always loved how weather patterns flow through the mountains, and this morning was magical. After a night of rain, the low cloud and mist will often form around the mountains, sometimes completely enveloping them.

The waiting game ensues, and if you're lucky, the sun might break through at just the right moment, lighting up the peaks in full drama.

These are two of the famous Three Sisters of Canmore; Charity and Hope. The third peak, Faith, refused to show her face that morning. A dawn that I won't soon forget.
