Natural landscapes: Light & Ice


I still like this 10-year-old attempt at transforming snow and ice into an abstract photograph. It was also my first attempt at letting go of straight horizons – even though there’s no horizon in this composition, the perspective is still twisted. Nikon FM2, tripod, polarizing filter.
Barrier Lake is a man-made reservoir created when Kananaskis River was dammed.
According to Wikipedia, Barrier Lake was used in the 2003 film X2: X-Men United as the stand in for Alkali Lake and in CBC Television’s Heartland as Eagle Lake (2011).
