It comes up late, it comes up low and at a flat angle, and it comes with intensity, hue and glow – the Winter Sun.
Here in Banff, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, from December to end of February, the Winter sun is cherished as it is not long shining on the landscape. Many lament the short days as the sun comes up around 8 and goes down at 4, so when the sun is up people get out and enjoy the outdoors for the brief , shortened days. These days, in the teeth of the winter, are short days and can be quite cold, but that doesn't mean they aren't enjoyable.
Still others ( like landscape photographers,) see this as a great opportunity to capture the special Rocky Mountain moments that the Winter Sun brings. The low angle casts intriguing shadows and rays of light over the landscape. The sun rises can be vibrant and filled with hues and magical lighting. At its peak the sun barley rises over the tops of the peaks. You can be walking a trail and be blinded by the sun shining right into your face but turn to the side and voila, the special lighting of the Winter Sun can be seen – even felt!
It can be cold, but that just keeps the air clear and the sun seems to pierce the air and high light features of the landscape. In the later months one has to be up at 3 and 4 to get to the locations to shoot sun up, but come the winter days , with sunup around 8,you can catch some extra sack time and still be on location to get that special moment the Winter Sun brings .
Winter Sun , it is different, it is special to this time of year , and it makes for wonderful moments to see the unique Canadian Rockies in Banff National Park. Even the wildlife enjoys it!
