Natural landscapes: that glorious first light


I fished back into the archives to dig up this 1998 scene, photographed from the Icefields Parkway in the Canadian Rocky Mountains just after sunrise. This is so long ago that I was still using a film camera; the slide was scanned onto a CD and the resulting jpeg was what I worked from to create the final picture.
A long telephoto lens isolated this small part of the astounding peaks to be seen on the parkway, which is considered one of the most beautiful drives on the planet.
Nikon FM2, tripod, polarizing filter (probably)
