Interesting Photo of the Day: Stormy Day Sunset in the Canadian Rockies

It’s hard to describe the exact moods evoked by Marc Adamus’s image “Light of the Storm.” The dark and menacing is rivaled by a warm and hopeful brightness—a beautiful visual example (and potentially metaphorical representation) of the ending of a storm. The image was captured from the lakeshore’s edge just as setting sun rays broke through storm clouds to illuminate the peak of Mount Inglemaldie in the Canadian Rockies:

After a day filled with consistent snowfall and high winds while on tour, the photograph was certainly a well-deserved and welcomed shot for Adamus. He described the occasion as “a moment of rare and beautiful light that rivaled any attempt at photographing it.”
