Natural landscapes: summer at Lake Louise
WILD DAISIES, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
Finding interesting compositions that avoid the usual cliches isn’t easy at Lake Louise, one of the most spectacular (and photographed) sites in North America (in case you’re wondering what it looks like during autumn, check out this photo: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-ck).
Lake Louise is even harder to photograph when you’re there during the harsh light of mid-day. But I spotted this slope covered in daisies and thought it might work with the background. And when I spotted those two people in the distance, I waited ’til they were between the trees before making an exposure. Nikon D90, fill-flash, polarizer.
