First light by gnohz First light by gnohz
I recall seeing a photo of Moraine Lake in Canada in a magazine and was instantly captivated by its surreal colours and glassy reflections. The images I saw were mostly taken at midday so I thought of capturing it in a different light, literally.

I got up really early and got there in time, looking for the right spot. Clouds blocked the sunlight at first but my patience paid off when the rays managed to pierce through momentarily, barely just enough time for a few captures.

The peaceful reflections...they remain deeply etched in my mind.

For people who are wondering, no, this is not a HDR and I did not use any software processing to achieve this effect. Only filters are used in all my work and the same goes for this :w00t:
