Natural landscapes: the light of morning
MOUNTAIN POND NEAR ABRAHAM LAKE, CANADIAN ROCKY MOUNTAINS
Among mountain photography enthusiasts in the Canadian province of Alberta, Abraham Lake is probably best known as the place to photograph amazing, weird ice bubbles every winter (here’s my example: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-gf).
I wanted to photograph there during summer, so my wife and I camped at Abraham Lake recently. Ironically, it was this nameless pond across the road from the lake that caught my attention.
Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter and probably a two-stop graduated density (darkening) filter on the top half.

Great job in capturing the true beauty of the scene.
Appreciate your kind words, Andy. 🙂
Beautiful Frank! Amazing light. Did not know about that spot. I love the lonely tree that leans away from the rest of them.
Thanks for the kind words, Paul. My first take on the scene had the lonely tree’s reflection connecting with the grass near the bottom. A tension point no-no. Moving a few feet created this scene and a suitable composition.
Sunlight, deep shadow and mist – love the combo!
Thanks, Brook. I definitely had great conditions to work with. 🙂
Ez gyönyörű! Mintha a jégtáblákból előre kivágták volna mintákat. Nem csak szép, de érdekes kép!
