Default Panorama Sunrise + Black Tusk - April 12, 2014

Started around 2am - gave myself an extra half hour since I wasn't sure if I would have to walk the road (to my surprise it's clear) so I got to the top of Panorama at about 6:00am, before sunrise. Consistent snow starts around the 2.5km mark. It was quite cold so I could pretty much used my mircospikes for the entire trip with the exception of a few parts. I knew that it was going to be quite windy - the forecast was showing gusts of over 60km and boy that was the case! Almost froze my fingers everytime I wanted to take a photo. My iPhone didn't like the cold much and kept shutting off - lucky I had my backup camera. There were about 6 cars at the trailhead when I arrived and I passed a tent set up at the 6km junction - guess they must have started later and decided not to go all the way to the lake. It was super windy on top, with snow blowing quite hard - made for some cool photos though.... Spent about 45min up top and then headed over to Black Tusk which wasn't quite as windy. Didn't see a soul all day until I was on my way down around the 4km mark. Some cool video I took of wind curls just below Panorama.

Excellent shots as always. The sunrise shot is remarkable. drifting snow on ridge are my two favourites.

Little grainy but that's the best the iPhone could do with little light - I think I may have also zoomed a bit which is a no no in low light
