Natural landscapes: the wall of snow and rock
WINTER LIGHT ON THE PRESIDENT, YOHO NATIONAL PARK, BRITISH COLUMBIA
I was many kilometres away from this peak but, standing on the shore of Emerald Lake, I was able to bridge the distance with a decent telephoto lens. Look at the trees along the bottom third; they’ll tell you this scene is a gigantic chunk of remote and raw real estate in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
As usual, I made the initial photo in colour and I like that version (you can see it here: https://bit.ly/YohoWinterPeak), but I knew going monotone would heighten the drama. Do you agree?
Nikon D7100, 70-300 mm. zoom lens, polarizing filter, tripod.
