The Wenkchemna Wall

A slightly different view of world-famous Moraine Lake today. This is the first time I feel like I somewhat managed to capture how big the Ten Peaks really are and how much they tower above the lake. The first 9 peaks are linked together in such a way that they show no weakness and are known to be one of the longest stretches of such imposing cliffs in the world.
There are two ways to get this shot. Spend the money and shoot from an aircraft. Or get some exercise and carry a fair amount of camera gear to the top of Redoubt Mountain across the Transcanada Highway. I went for the latter option and used the summit cairn as a tripod.
