Interesting Photo of the Day: All the World’s Ablaze in this Canadian Mountain Valley

DIRE WARNING:  Look away right now unless you wish to be gripped by an irresistible urge to move to Canada immediately. If you choose to continue forward, please also remember that it is impossible to climb through your screen and pitch a tent inside landscape photographer Marc Adamus‘ gorgeous image of this river valley in Yukon’s Ogilvie Mountains at sunset:

The Ogilvie Mountains lie in the northernmost region of Canada’s Yukon territory. Some of the most popular views of the range’s picturesque peaks can be had from Tombstone Territorial Park, an 850 square mile tundra blanketed with black granite, roving caribou, beautiful alpine foliage, and more.

“Even in the hands of a master, a camera alone will never capture Nature as we can observe it with all of our senses,” writes Adamus on his website. “I believe a great photograph is not merely documenting the scene at hand, rather it is about fusing the essential vision of the artist with the landscape… This is nature through my eyes.”

Adamus, who is based in Corvallis, Oregon, discovered this river valley while backpacking through the area one autumn. He captured three different exposures and blended them together to create the image.
