This was taken in the evening at Hooker Lake where i was alone in the dark apart from a few large possums. I used a long exposure but due to the wind, some of the icebergs shifted and so are slightly blurry in this image. littleleafcreative.com
Our tour across the Rockies had taken us far across British Columbia and Alberta. On day three we set out in thick fog and pouring rain. The plan was to strike out for Lake Louise and Emerald Lake in the hope the sun might show up. Luck was on our side, we left the bad weather behind us and were treated to the stunning trademark views everyone has come to expect of Canada.
This was taken near the Lake Agnes Tea house where me and my friend hiked too. We had lunch at the tea house and I thought that this would make for a beautiful photo. I loved that the snow hadn’t fully melted and that the lake is still largely frozen over even in late May.
I went to this quite well-know location to take a few photos at sunrise, and when I had finished shooting with my DSLR I took the drone up for some amazing views of the mountains, partially covered by snow. Buy awesome, limited edtition, photo prints: handpictphoto.com
