Lake #6

Lake Minnewanka. Probably my favourite lake in the Rockies.

I’ve shot here a few times in the last year and I just can’t get enough of it. Since long exposures were the name of the game for me last Tuesday, I kept the 10-stop ND on my lens during my time at Minnewanka – and I’m glad I did. The movement in those colourful clouds and the silky smooth water make this image for me. Have a great weekend!

P.S. Don’t worry, #FilmFriday will be back soon – I just don’t have enough analog material at the moment!

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

This is simply stunning Heath. The color palette, the smoothness of the water, and the alpenglow are just perfection! Such a serene image.

I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t seen anybody’s recent work. Thanks for the reminder today that I need to visit all of you more often. This is stunning, Heath! 🙂

Oh my god dude, this is hands down my favorite shot from you. That golden light is absolutely stunning.

Wow Heath, this is pretty awesome. I love using the ND filter on clouds and water. Very nice work buddy!

Loving the light on top of those peaks and how the colours subtly move onto the water – really nice shot…makes me want to get out there with my ND filter.
