Spring Reflection on Cameron Lake
Thane Vanderaegen captured “Spring Reflection on Cameron Lake” in Waterton Park, using a Canon 40D with a Canon 17-40mm f4.0 lens. Three bracketed shots were taken utilizing a circular polarizer.
“I arrived at Cameron Lake quite early, and upon seeing the lake this calm, I knew that the scene was perfect. When the shots were combined in Photomatix, the colors took on the hues of Ammolite, a gemstone found in Southwestern Alberta.”
