Summer Lake, East Kootenay, is a secluded lake found deep in the backcountry, about a two-hour drive from Fernie.

Summer Lake, East Kootenay: I thought I would start with my favourite photograph from Summer Lake, this early morning is a panoramic photograph. The light is cutting through the mountains to my left, hitting the peaks and warming the face of the mountain. Everyone else was still sleeping off the night’s beers and I had the place to myself. Photograph Details: 1/5th sec, F8.0, ISO 100, 14mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5. This photograph is available for purchase, here.

Photograph Details: 1/80th sec, F8.0, ISO 100, 67mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5. This photograph is available for purchase, here.

With Fall in Fernie just around the corner, Iโ€™m stoked to get out and explore more of the backcountry and photograph the beautiful colours (when the backcountry is open). This past week I have been in Revelstoke exploring and photographing as I go. Keep an eye on my Instagram and remember to like Nomads on the Road on Facebook.
