This is Moraine Lake in Canada. With its brilliant colors and deep turquoise waters, it’s a popular place to shoot. I am usually more likely to photograph dynamic weather conditions with brilliantly colored skies… but I love this shot for its serenity.
I used a soft GND filter to balance the light and to capture the soft morning glow on the mountain. On this particular morning, everything was very very still… and I used an extra long shutter speed to make sure that the water of the lake reflected not only the mountains but conveyed a sense of the morning calm.
