Mount Rundle, Banff National Park, at Sunset


Mt. Rundle is east and a little south of the townsite of Banff. North of it is a small (by Rocky Mountain scale) lake called Vermillion Lake.

Here we see Mt. Rundle from the edge of Vermillion Lake. A road provides easy access to this point and the Trans-Canada highway is only around hundred metres away.

At sunset, the high mountains receive light that is strongly refracted through the atmosphere, consequently it is very red. The look is called "alpine-glow".
