Natural landscapes: before the lake freezes
LATE AUTUMN AT LAKE LOUISE, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
I’ve rarely been able to visit this iconic Canadian Rocky Mountain lake with snow and before the water freezes for six months. So this was a bonus; I was there to go for a walk with my lovely wife and this was the only composition I photographed – so a 100 percent success rate on this “photo” trip! 😉
The colour version is pretty cool – you can see it here: http://bit.ly/AutumnAtLakeLouise – but even as I made this picture I knew I would create a B&W version just ’cause monotone is often more dramatic. And if you check out the colour version, you’ll see that’s true.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on most of the sky.
