Photo of the Week: Week 33

This week’s photo comes to you from the Icefields Parkway once again (can you tell I like it up there?), this time from the Rampart Ponds area. This was taken shortly after sunrise once the light had made it’s way down to the valley bottom and my breakfast and coffee had made it’s way into my stomach. The fog behind the trees and the shape of the clouds were what caught my eye, along with the perfect reflection in the smooth water. Despite the rule that you should never place the horizon in the middle of the frame, I did it anyway to emphasize the symmetry of the shot.
I was fortunate with this one, because only moments later the wind picked up, the water got rough, the reflection disappeared, and the fog cleared out. Just like that, the shot was gone and I was glad to have captured it when I did. It’s amazing how quickly things can change out there, I guess that’s part of what makes it so exciting and satisfying when you can seize on of these beautiful moments.

Thanks for stopping in, I hope you like this one.
