Natural landscapes: the snowy spring lake
PRAIRIE LAKE IN APRIL SNOW, NEAR COCHRANE, ALBERTA
I don’t know the name of this lake, but I do know it’s been the subject of many very satisfying photos — especially because the road winds around it and up a ridge, providing this very picturesque overview. I like the colour version, but there isn’t a lot of colour in this scene so I’m showing you the more dramatic monotone version.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.

Oh yes, the B/W highlights the many aspects of the landscape, Frank, with the moody clouds, landscape features, and wonderful water reflection. A wonderful photo, Frank.
Thanks! I purposely darkened the ground in the bottom left to give your eye something to focus on in that section of the scene. 🙂
Another great choice for a black and white, nicely done.
