I had been waiting to capture a unique sunrise of Mount Garibaldi and the trip did not disappoint. For these photos, we took a backpacking adventure in the Brandywine Meadows area in Whistler, British Columbia.
We spent the afternoon hiking up a steep alpine ridge from Brandywine Meadows to set up camp and prepare for the early morning spectacle awaiting us. The hike was well worth it, although a bit treacherous at times, we pushed on in the hopes of incredible views awaiting us.
Have you ever felt like you were literally on top of the world? It’s an indescribable feeling, one that I hope you can absorb from my prints of this adventure. Looking out upon an endless sea of clouds and being up so high you feel the rest of the world has disappeared below the clouds.
In the distance, you can feel the looming giant snowcapped Mountain Garibaldi peeking above the clouds. Mount Garibaldi was named by Navy Captain George Richards in 1860 after revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi. The rawness of the wilderness at that time prevented exploration of the area before it would go on to become the modern day Garibaldi Provincial Park. It truly humbles me to be able to photograph these fantastic scenes.
