Whistler Gondolas By Moonlight

Moonlit Gondolas, Whistler, Canada

One of the highlights of our time in Canada was a sunset photo tour we took with David McColm to the top of Whistler mountain. I cannot recommend this tour enough! Coming back down the mountain after dark we spotted these gondolas silhouetted perfectly against the moonlit sky.

I’m sure our time was pretty much up by this point, but we still spent what must have been at least 20 minutes working this scene from the side of the road. That 20 minutes was probably the most fun I have ever had with my camera! It was fantastic to share the experience with another passionate landscape photographer.

That small light to the right of the moon is Jupiter, and just out of shot was Saturn also shining bright. Unfortunately we missed the aurora borealis by one night, but I can’t think of a much better to reason to go back!

David’s time lapse work from Whistler is out of this world, and if you’re interested in taking a tour you can book through the Whistler Blackcomb website. David has no idea that I’ve mentioned his tour in this post, I simply had a brilliant time!
