Natural landscapes: the winter viewpoint
MOUNT TEMPLE FROM MORANT’S CURVE, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
While photographing at this famous spot in the Canadian Rockies (here’s a view: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-tH), I loved the clean, simple view of Mount Temple, one of the best know peaks in the park. So I made several exposures and really liked this one because there’s lots of space around the peaks, making the composition almost minimalist.
A key to compelling winter photography is often snow on the trees. I would not have bothered making this picture if the trees were bare. There wasn’t much colour, so it was an easy decision to go black-and-white. That said, you can see the colour version here: http://bit.ly/3dUos3y.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the most of the sky.
