Earlier this week Wayne Simpson and I headed out to shoot the sunrise up at Herbert Lake on the Icefields Parkway. While we didn’t get the dramatic fiery crimson skies we were hoping for, we did end up with a couple hours of pretty nice soft light as the clouds slowly moved through the sky across the valley from us. It was actually a little more relaxing to not be pressured by racing the light and trying to nail just the right composition in time. We just casually worked our way up and down the shoreline, framing up different shots and enjoying the peace and quiet of the morning. Here is one of my shots from the morning that I liked for the peaceful feel of the blue and subtle magenta tones, the still water, and fresh snow. To get the wide perspective I was after, I shot two horizontal images and stitched them together vertically. The final image is a square crop from the composite.
I’ll be posting a couple more from this shoot later this week, so be sure to check back in.
