Natural landscapes: this is for real


A mid-summer afternoon is usually a bland time for photography, given the harsh light of that time of day. The advantage, however, is popular areas have lots of people to include in compositions. That was the case at this astounding lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
I stood atop a rock pile at the end of the lake (once depicted on the Canadian 20-dollar bill) and used a big telephoto lens to isolate the canoe and trees. A polarizing filter was important to eliminate almost all the reflections and let you see the incredible colour of this lake. Nikon D90, tripod.
