Halo Goat

One of the beautiful things about being up high in the mountains at dusk is the low angle the sun makes during its final minutes of the day. A halo of light glows though the thick winter coat of this Rocky Mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) as it grazes in the high altitude meadows leading down from snowbird pass. The blue gray in the upper left is the Robson glacier. Mt Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada.
