Commonly referred to as the Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies, the pyramidal summit of iconic Mt. Assiniboine in Assiniboine National Park towers 3618 meters above ground level and bears a striking resemblance to the Matterhorn of the Swiss Alps, albeit with its own fascinations and unique natural dominion.
Accessible only by helicopter or full-day hike, the remote beauty of Mt. Assiniboine left me spellbound, having to pinch myself to believe it was real. The domineering peak towers above Lake Magog and a valley blanketed in Larch trees, unique to northern mountain latitudes. During one week in late September, they provide a short window for me to capture their brilliant and rare shade of golden-yellow foliage.
While our eyes are naturally drawn to the allure of the summit, visibility can be fickle, as this naturally-crafted wonder is at the mercy of the seasons, elements, and time. During my initial attempts to capture the perfect shot, rain and overcast conditions would obstruct the view, while blustering storms threatened to shed and disperse the delicate Larch needles from their branches.
Heavenly Divine took four attempts, as well as four separate trips over 3 years for full immersion within Assiniboine National Park’s enthralling backcountry landscapes. When the clouds parted, I was able to capture the blue sky during the day, the Milky Way at night, and every golden larch needle still intact.
