Natural landscapes: the glorious valley view


I visited this lookout in the Canadian Rocky Mountains the previous afternoon when the light was all wrong, so I returned at sunrise the next day and captured this stunning example of God’s glorious creation. The colour version is good, but I wanted a more classic Ansel Adams-style version to show you.
(Here’s a colour view from same lookout, looking in the opposite direction:

Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the peaks and sky.
