Natural landscapes: where the river runs clear
SUNRISE ON THE BOW RIVER, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
I had to scramble down through thigh-deep snow to get from the road to the shores of this river in Canada’s best-known Rocky Mountain park. But when I look at this photograph, the discomfort (and the wet pants) were absolutely worth it. I moved quickly – before the sky became too light – to use a darkening filter on the sunrise, so it wouldn’t be too bright compared to the ground. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter, two-stop hard-edge graduated density filter, enhancing filter.
