Travelling through BC's Rogers Pass at dawn, I came across this wonderful, sun-kissed formation known as "The Camels", which I chose to shoot in monochrome with an 830nm infrared-converted Canon R7 with an on-board red filter. I tend to lose a couple of stops with my modifications, but the Canon R7's in-body image stabilization is more than up to the task - this was shot handheld with a 100mm focal length.
And I guess it's maybe less about a photograph and more about photography; I was having such a bad morning when 3 hours into my drive, I stumbled across this just as the sun cleared the peaks southeast of here. And that's all it took - my whole day instantly turned to gold. I know you know what I'm talking about... we all get them, every once in a while - those shots where as soon as you hit the shutter, that inner voice thunders in your head, "THIS is why I do this. THIS is why I get up a 2 am and drive hundreds of kilometres on a wing and a prayer", because lightning does indeed strike, my friends, even under a cloudless morning sky!
