Shades of Turquoise, Banff National Park, Canada
#PhotographyWorkflow , #howtophotograph

If you want to see picturesque lakes there is no place better than the Canadian Rockies (in my opinion). Lakes formed by the Glacial Run off often take on a turquoise colors due to the Glacial silt present in them as you can see this photograph of Peyto Lake.

How was this photograph created?
I used a circular polarizer to cut through as much humidity as possible on this warm and humid day. The composition of the photograph was selected to include various diagonals formed by the tree line, the rocks and the Peyto Lake itself. I waited until the clouds had formed interesting patterns on the lake AND the sun was shining on the foreground rocks (this brought out the rich colors in the rocks and the lichen).

Enjoy & Share.
