Natural landscapes: amidst the falling snow
AUTUMN AT CAVELL LAKE, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
I’ve photographed this lake before (http://wp.me/p2ccTX-rV), but not in such gloomy, introspective conditions. With so much fog, I opted to concentrate on the edge of a forest and the snowy rock wall. I tried darkening the background during processing, but found I liked keeping it lighter so it doesn’t compete with the trees for your attention.
Look carefully and you’ll see some streaks of falling snow. And yes, I converted this scene to black and white. There was snow little colour in the scene that going all the way to monotone seemed wise.
Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300 mm. zoom lens.
