Rural landscapes: The morning mountain view
DECK CHAIRS ALONG THE SHORE OF WATERTON LAKE, ALBERTA
Waterton Lakes National Park is one of the windiest places in Canada. The breeze is almost always blowing strongly along the lake shore, to the point where many trees grow at a sharp angle away from the prevailing direction.
This spot, protected by trees, is relatively calm and that’s where parks staff set up these red chairs for visitors to enjoy the sublime view and capture selfies.
I published a full-colour version elsewhere (you can see it here: http://bit.ly/WatertonChairs) but wanted to try processing the scene like this, with just the chairs in colour. Do you think it works?
