Description

This shot is a part of the landscape calendar, which is now available! Go check it out :D

Our objective for the day was to get on top of Panorama Ridge (snow-capped mountain on the mid left) to view the lake from above, but we turned away due to some dangerous overhanging snow which looked like it could start an avalanche at any moment. Instead of not getting to see the lake at all, I decided to run there quickly which added about an hour to our trip. We were walking through the forest in the dark, but seeing the lake at near sunset was so worth it!

While the lake itself had ripples, the somewhat enclosed pool of water between the Battleship Islands and the shore was like a mirror.

Only 15 days earlier, this was still frozen -

Instantly you are sweped away to a fairy tale land of clear water beautiful mountains and light fluffy clouds.....

I love this deviation it really captures the beauty of the snow capped ridge. there is so much to look at in this picture however this is in a good way rather than it being to buissy all the reflections and hight give this picture real depth. on the other hand this would in my opioion look better with around 5cm tacken of the bottom to be cropped into a long rectangle to to focus mainly on the beautifyl backgroud rather than the shallows in which it would look better taken lower down. apart from this its a FANTASTIC piece of art and one i wish to replicate myself one day.



well done
