Misty mountains from the Reservoir

This is a very typical scene here in Calgary. Sunny skies on the prairie, clouds and precipitation in the mountains. Sometimes it's reversed. Our Rockies do get many blue-sky days, but not quite as many as the prairies. The snow fills the mountains, tops up the glaciers (but not enough alas), settles in the valleys, and stores the moisture for us to use throughout the spring, summer and fall.
