Natural landscapes: fishing in grandeur

MORNING AT UPPER KANANASKIS LAKE, ALBERTA

This lake, in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, is a pretty big water body, so you’d think opportunities to photograph it in relatively still conditions would be rare. And yet, at least half the time I’ve visited, I’ve found amazing reflections waiting for me.

And when I saw the fishing dude, I had time, from a hiking trail well above him, to arrange a pretty decent composition. A few branches sticking into the bottom left corner were easily cloned out. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter and, probably, a hard-edge graduated density filter on the top half.
