Featured Download: St. Mary’s Sunrise

Click to Download

We had been up for almost 24 hours the day before, but decided to get up and shoot anyway. It’s tough to get out of bed after just 4 hours of sleep… but it was worth it. We were rewarded with fantastic light and clouds over St. Mary Lake in Glacier National Park (Montana).

This image is all about balancing the light. I used a 0.6- stop GND filter to balance the light between the foreground and the sky. Even with the GND filter, I needed to use our manual blending (iHDR) workflow. I also used a 1.2-stop ND filter and polarizer to slow down the shutter speed for a smooth surface on the water.

10 seconds @ F16, ISO:100
