Cats Face is the name of a local mountain. It gets it’s name from a mica deposit that flashes like cats eyes when the sun hits it just right.
Last night we got a rare dumping of snow! One thing I’ve learned over the years is that If you want to get pictures of snow, you have to do it in the morning because it’ll be gone by sunset!
So I got up this morning at 6 am and headed out in the dark riding my bike on roads that resembled a skating rink! (I ended up walking more then riding)
Because there were zero clouds I knew the first light to come would be pink. It lasts just minutes! It’s the most delicate colour to shoot and yes very fleeting.
There is a low grade cooper ore deposit in Cats Face. Plans were made at one time to shear the top of this mountain off to make a open pit mine. Once word got out about this everybody shouted a loud “NO”! Since then I haven’t heard anymore about this proposal? Which is fine by me!
