Natural landscapes: the sky of sunrise


Weaselhead Flats is a 240-hectare natural area in the southwest part of this western Canadian city. It’s a special, wild area that opens up into Glenmore Reservoir, one of Calgary’s main water sources. I went to the Weaselhead to capture a sunrise, but the sun came up further north than the angle I wanted. Still, I was able to find and photograph scenes like this, using a graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
