I finally managed to get back out to the Rockies for some shooting this week, and boy did it ever feel good. It had been about a month and a half since my last trip out west which, as far as I’m concerned, is much too long to go between visits. I’ve been juggling a pretty busy schedule lately, and even this week it was quite a challenge to squeeze in some shooting time, but I was glad to make it work. Joined by my good friends Wayne Simpson and Brad Anderson we headed out to Spray Lakes early one morning to see what we could find to put in front of our lenses. While we didn’t have much of a dramatic sunrise light show, the low clouds, fog, and fresh snow provided a wonderfully calm and moody atmosphere. It was such a peaceful and quiet morning, the kind that just reminds you how awesome it is just to be out there and taking it all in. We didn’t have a whole lot of time there with the quickly changing weather, but it was certainly enjoyable for the time we did. As the snow started to come down more heavily, and at a rate faster than we could keep it off our lenses, we realized we were done and hit the road.
This week’s photo is one of the few images I made in the pre-dawn light on the shoreline that morning. I hope you enjoy this one, I certainly enjoyed making it.
Great shot Ian! I think this is about my favourite light to shoot in! I also had a great time that morning!
