And suddenly it was almost one and a half year ago since I last posted! Oops! I guess life, in general, kept me too busy. Or, maybe I just needed an extended break to get back some focus! Here are some reflections that I captured in the Rocky Mountains just after dawn at Bow Lake in Banff National Park, Canada.
One of the things that kept me busy in the past two years was travelling the world. I visited places like Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Ireland, France, Spain and Italy. I am planning to go even more in the years to come! So, I will have plenty of new images to publish and share in the coming months and years.
This lake landscape photograph is titled Tranquil Dawn. I recently added it to our new Canadian Landscape Photography collection. I captured it during a trip to the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains at the end of the summer of 2014, where I also had the pleasure to meet up with Canadian photographers George Marquardt and Olivier Du Tré.
The photograph is a long exposure landscape that I shot during sunrise at Bow Lake. Bow Lake is a small mountain lake in Banff National Park in western Alberta, Canada. It is located on the Bow River, in the Canadian Rockies, at an altitude of 1,920 metres (6,300 ft).
The photograph features a frosty tree trunk pointing towards the Rock Mountains in the back. Although there were some beautiful sunrise colours in the sky and water, I felt the image worked best in black & white. I hope you like it!?
As a side note and tip for travellers, the Num-Ti-Jah Lodge located on the shores of Bow Lake is a great place to stay. Friendly people and good food as well. And some magnificent sunrise and sunset shooting locations nearby. Make sure to book early, as the lodge seems to fill up quickly.
I used a Nikon D810 and a Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G lens. The settings were: 24mm, ƒ/16, 122s and ISO 64. Click on the photograph if you would like to know more about this photograph or are interested in buying a print or licence.
Cheers, Johan 🙂
