19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Canadian Backcountry

We were guiding a group of tourists into the Backcountry of British Columbia. In the evening it got dark and a lot of fog was rising up from the valley, which left us stranded on a mountaintop until shortly before sunset. Luckily, we could get rescued by a helicopter, and we got to see an incredible sunset with a stunning mood above the mountains of B.C.
