Natural landscapes: The lines of shadow and light

SNOW PATTERNS AT LAKE LOUISE, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA

Afternoon sun cast all manner of fascinating shadows in the snows around this iconic Canadian Rocky Mountain lake. I pulled out the biggest telephoto zoom lens I had and started isolating and compressing shadow lines together (compression is a natural occurence with big telephoto lens) and went for a shallow depth of field to subtly highlight one section of the photograph. Nikon D90, 70-200 mm. lens, tripod.
