Natural landscapes: Autumn “sentinels”


LouiseSnowmenWeb1My wife and I were at this iconic tourist destination on a magical day – right after an autumn snowfall. Just as important, there was no wind to disturb the lake, so as I was walking around making endless photographs (it was hard to make a bad picture in these conditions), I found this whimsical pair and couldn’t resist trying my photographic luck.
A key part of making this picture work was during processing, to darken the distant misty clouds so they wouldn’t be a distracting, bland wash of white. How did I do?
Nikon D90, tripod, fill-flash, polarizing filter.
