Natural landscapes: beneath the glorious peaks
BOW RIVER, NEAR LAKE LOUISE, ALBERTA
I was on my way home from a full day of making pictures in the Canadian Rocky Mountains when I crossed a bridge and glimpsed this scene out the side window. Stopped the van, backed up and clambered up on a snowbank on the bridge to capture this glorious vista. I was fortunate to make a half-dozen exposures, since passing vehicles caused just enough vibrations to render several versions useless.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the peaks and sky.
