Perched high above the City of Fernie in Southeastern British Columbia, the Three Sisters (also known as Mount Trinity) are one of the iconic peaks of the Elk Valley. At 2788m above sea level, the summit is the highest mountain in the Fernie area, and is a deservedly popular subject for photographers in Fernie.
Ever since I moved to Fernie in 2014 the Three Sisters always stood out to me. I admired the steep and snowy faces, and loved the morning light as it lit the peaks. In early 2017 I decided to capture the Three Sisters as the seasons changed, from the same spot and with the same morning light.
The Three Sisters tends to either be enveloped in clouds or completely free of clouds. Knowing this, and combined with my work and travel schedule this year I thought this could be a difficult project to pull off to achieve my vision. Indeed, even though I went to my spot 4 times in the spring, I still couldn't pull off a shot with the peaks lit up and wonderful clouds above, and settled with a nice blue sky morning for my Three Sisters Spring
