Photo of the Week: Week 17

I made this week’s photo earlier this week on a trip out towards Lake Louise for sunrise. Being that I’m working without my trusty wide angle lens these days (no word on when I’m getting it back yet by the way, only the news that the damage has been pegged at $600… ouch!), I had to find a location that would work well with my next widest lens, a 50mm. I’ve driven by this location many times and even stopped to get out and look through the camera a couple times, but never really tried to make a shot here before. I knew that the distances would be about right for a longer lens so I thought this might be a good time to give it a try. While this isn’t the colourful sunrise I was hoping I might see here, I’m still pleased with how this one turned out. I really like the low lying clouds in the scene, but they were a challenge in that they only parted enough to see the peaks for a few short moments. I find that these type of images just don’t really work for me if the mountain tops aren’t mostly visible, so I was glad to have been able to capture this one. I hope you enjoy it as well.

  1. Great shot Ian! I agree that the low clouds really add to the shot. Would love to see a colour version if you make it back there when the weather cooperates! I think you will love your 14-24 even more once you get it back… and you will be crazy protective of it since it’s now worth $600 more to you!

    • Thanks Wayne I appreciate that. I’m with you, I’d like to see a colour version here as well if I can get the right conditions. I was thinking I might try doing a pre dawn long exposure too, and maybe get lucky with a train coming through for a nice light trail. You’re right about the lens for sure, I’ll be babying it like crazy!
