‘I See Mountains’ – in 2010 I found myself on a new journey, this time travelling through the land of giants, the Rocky Mountains of the Western Canadian landscape. I felt utterly alone in this hauntingly impressive landscape, as I watched the sunrise paint these snowy peaks. Casting shadows and vivid colours as the blues of night shifted to purple and orange under sunrise, and later unveiling the natural green tones of midday. The Rocky Mountains are a lesson in light, shape, form and patience. From the Group of Seven to Robert Genn, these mountains have romanced many and the love affair continues.
