Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park, Canada #landscapephotography
When we arrived at the Emerald Lake storms clouds were gathering overhead, but we ignored the warnings because the stunning beauty of the lake was simply overwhelming!! We grabbed our camera gear and decided to answer the call of the wild and went wandering around the lake.How was this photograph created?
This photograph used ND Filters and circular polarizer to bring out the details and colors in every part of the image. The ND Filter allowed me to use really slow shutter speed to remove all textures from the water so that a viewer attention is focused on the colors. The final image required a manual blending to bring out the details in the sky and the mountains.
Prelude: As we were taking this photograph the winds picked up and the storm began to intensify. Soon we could head the trees coming down in the woods all around us...and we had to run to the parking lot to get away from the crashing trees.
Enjoy & Share.___________
