Where The Light Shines

Patch Of Sunlight

When photographing a landscape, you can’t control where the light shines. but I do enjoy finding a naturally spot lit image. This image from near Lake Louise was a matter of taking advantage of an opportunity that presents itself. When a shaft of light peeks through the clouds and lights only one peak, shoot it! A bit of post processing to finish the image and a crop to get rid of a few more blown out clouds and there’s a scene I like.

In the best light…

    • Thanks, It’s actually just a few miles east of Lake Louise, Alberta in Banff National Park.

    • Thank you Douglas, This was shot with my Nikon P6000. I have a backlog of exposed film waiting to go the the lab.
