Natural landscapes: the lurid sunrise
DAWN AT VERMILLION LAKES, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
I plunged into the archives to resurrect, from 2010, one of the most spectacular sunrises I’ve ever been blessed to witness. This was a tricky picture to process; I wanted to show you some detail in the shadows, but not to the point of making the picture seem unrealistic.
Then there was the matter of colour. It truly was stunning, but I didn’t want it to be so saturated that it didn’t seem real. In the end, I hope I achieved a good balance. Do you agree?
Nikon D90, tripod, (probably) an enhancing filter
