Photographer's Note

It's a quiet afternoon in Coastal Mountains of British Columbia. We are looking from Brohm Ridge towards peaks and glaciers of Tantalus Range. Squamish River valley is cooling as the evening approaches, but up here the sun is still strong, pushing colder air down and creating this rare phenomenon of inversion with layers of clouds like veils that conceal the mystery below us.
Four years from now these mountains will be known to millions of people around the world when Vancouver will host the next Winter Olympics and all traffic between there and Whistler (site of all alpine, cross country and ski jumping competitions, about 50 km to the right, looking at this photo) is going to pass right down in the valley up Sea-to-Sky highway, in the shadow of these majestic mountains.
