Spearhead    Russet Lake, Garibaldi Provincial park, British Columbia, Canada

The warm glow of last light sets on Mt Macbeth, Tremor and Shudder mountains in the Spearhead Range. Russet Lake is a great location for a quick weekend alpine getaway. Not far from Whistler the most scenic approach is to take the gondola up to the whistler summit and walk along the ridge line over Piccolo the Musical Bumps, Singing Pass and finally the lake itself. There is a little hut located at the lake but I would highly recommend not staying there as it is usually infested with mice. I set up for this shot well before sunset and impatiently waited in a swarm of mosquitoes until the light changed
