Natural landscapes: viewing the amazing mountains


What a blessing it was to arrive at this Canadian Rocky Mountain lake early enough to capture the stunning first light of a new day. I liked this scene and knew a silhouetted person would add a nice human touch. So I set myself up in front of the camera, pretending to make a snapshot on my phone. The resulting photo showed some detail of my red shirt, so I just kept darkening me until all detail and colour disappeared.
I ended up enjoying a walk all the way around the lake, which is about a half-hour drive west of Lake Louise and the border with Alberta.
