Reeds On The Lake

Sproingy Curves

The reeds in Vermillion Lakes are quite interesting the repeating curves attracted my eye. Find what to shoot and how to do that was another question.

I tried to limit the number of stalks in this image. I used a slower shutter speed to show the movement from the wind. If you examine the scene closely you will find some of the stalks that stayed still are sharp and the ones that were blown by the wind are slightly blurred or quite blurred as is the case with the top most reed. The snow and ice behind provided a nice textured background.


In this image I wanted to show the reflection of the the reed in the open water. You can see the ice formed around the base of the stalks. Again I used a longer shutter speed to show the movement by the wind.

The photos this week were taken as part of the Persistent Vision weekend Field Shoot put on by my friends Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou from at Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park with guest instructor David DuChemin.

In the best light…
