When the 2007 GTTSR left Banff, Alberta I had talked with Philippe Reyns and arranged to photograph his Jaguar XKSS. Shaun Redmond was at the wheel of the 65E and I was ready with my camera and favorite lens. As we left Highway 1 and climbed towards the pass leading to Radium Hot Springs in British Columbia the road straightened and the dawn light was … perfect. It was that magical golden crisp morning bright that makes everything look and feel â€¦ wonderful.
I motioned Philippe to pass me and starting right here the two Jaguars performed a pas de deux for the next several miles. I concentrated on shooting the ultra rare Coventry cat but for this shot I captured the scene itself and that amazing light.
