Description The day I took this photo was one of those perfect winter days when the sun glints off of the snow like diamonds and the air is so cold it burns your lungs and makes them feel clean. The trail up to Rawson lake is steep and by the time I got to the top, I was really warm and the cold started to seep in right away. I took a couple of shots before my fingers started to go numb and was just about pack up my camera when a valley gust hit the top of Mount Sarrail and swirled the crystalized snow at the perfect angle for the sun to hit it like a spotlight. At that point, my fingers were the last thing on my mind!
Teryn Robinson, Calgary Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement As a landscape photographer, I'm interested in promoting the conservation and preservation of the natural world. I strive to create photos that make the viewer want to renew their connection with their environment. The inspirations for my work are the amazing landscapes that surround me, from the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean.
I'm also very interested in experimenting with different photographic mediums. Digital photography, medium format film, and polaroid instant film create a huge stylistic spectrum.
Photography means the world to me and I'm so grateful to be able to share that with others. I want to take a chance to thank you all for your support and allowing me to do what I love.
