Lake #2

The second lake I hit on my mountain journey last week was Lake Louise – one of the most well known lakes in Banff National Park. I can almost guarantee you that it’s been shot by every photographer that comes to Banff, but I still can’t get enough of it. It’s just so picturesque and it looks a little bit different every time I visit. Last week the distant peaks were shrouded in circling cloud – something I’d never seen before, so I was happy to be able to capture it.

Equipment:
Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L
B+W 77mm 10 stop ND Filter

Nice man, love that cloud movement in the back. Beautiful water and I dig that slight blue tinge on the water’s horizon.

Dude, this is ridiculous. That cloud motion from the long exposure is insane. Print this on metal, ASAP.

Get out of here with this. Seriously. What the hell. This is incredible.

Love this image of Lake Louise with the snow and no crowds! I’m going to have to get up there in the snow months.

Sweet! Love the CPL here to see ‘into’ the water! This is just a fantastic scene!

Digging all that snow. It’s 75 here in Phoenix.

Hot damn this is incredible, Heath! Great balance of shadows and light.

I love everything there is to love about this image, and really can’t add anything that hasn’t already been said. Very nice.
