Natural landscapes: the monotone mountain sunrise


This spring-fed Rocky Mountain lake, several hundred feet above the town of Canmore, is a dream to photograph on windless days because there are spectacular mountains reflected in every direction.
Surprisingly, there wasn’t much colour in this scene so I went monotone to highlight the drama of the sunrise trying to poke through the clouds.
Nikon D7100, tripod, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
