Moraine by Moonlight – heath ofee dot com

Prior to meeting up with Rick Louie and the rest of the photography group he was with in Banff, I’d never attempted any night photography. That’s not to say I’ve never taken photos at night before, but I’ve never attempted to capture a landscape in near pitch black before. The evening I arrived, we all made our way to the shores of Moraine Lake after the sun had set for some long exposures under the moonlight. Our images would have been a bit more dramatic had the moon made it’s way over the mountains on the left before we got too cold to continue, but I’m relatively happy with how this turned out. I was a bit unsure how to process this shot, so I ended up leaving it quite close to the way it came out of the camera – I’ll have to experiment some more with this type of photography.

  1. Awesome Heath! I’m with you on the processing part of these…I’ve done like 1-2 images at night for stars like this one, and I wasn’t sure what to do with it…but I’m gonna post it sometime anyways 🙂

  2. Night photography – especially landscapes – is awesome fun. I really enjoy the challenge too. This is a great shot man… I love Moraine lake.

    What’s illuminating the top of the mountain there? Is that the moon out of the frame?
