Mt. Ida in the Shuswap, BC, Canada. This is the third sunset in a row this week that I've gotten out for. It feels good to be outside with my camera again :)

The Shuswap is a challenging place to photograph, and try to come up with anything unique. Living here has helped teach me to find compositions where it would seem like there are none (but most days I come away with nothing that I like). There are the staple spots that all the photographers visit over and over again, but they usually include man-made elements which I prefer to keep out of my photos, when possible.

So, when I go somewhere with incredible scenery, sometimes everything I've learned about composition flies out the window in my amazement and wonder at the scene in front of me. Photography becomes secondary in moments like that, and because I've just been standing there in complete awe, I have missed quite a few gorgeous lighting opportunities photographically. Knowing that, I now make myself shoot through it, while trying to make sure I'm appreciating it beyond the photography aspect as well. It's a weird dance to do, and long exposures have helped me with this particular little challenge. :lol: Hopefully I can hold it together for my next trip - Vancouver Island. I hear it's gorgeous there :aww:

Absolutely beautiful shot, and I love the color split.  Do you generally use Lightroom or Photoshop more in your post-processing?

This one is barely touched colour-wise in post processing, but I generally use Lightroom for culling and Photoshop for editing! :aww:

Such a gorgeous view!! And the composition seems spot on!! It is true that we can lose our own appreciation of what we are looking at when we are on a single minded mission to try to make a perfect shot.

a very dramatic composition Jaclyn... makes me think of mordor!


I really like how the clouds and the land team up to point the eye to the mountain in the background. really nice eye travel on this one.
