Natural landscapes: the sublime sunrise
FIRST LIGHT AT EMERALD LAKE, YOHO NATIONAL PARK, BRITISH COLUMBIA
My first visit to this Canadian Rocky Mountain lake in several years happened on a stunning morning of blue skies and still water. This was one of those unforgettable photo trips when it was hard to make a bad picture.
The colour version is compelling (you can see it here: https://bit.ly/EmeraldLakeSunrise) but, as always with monotone, I like the drama that happens when colour is removed. 🙂
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
