here's another of my shots from Baker Lake a couple of days ago. this was one of the last shots before ileft to head home. the midday light had been harsh - clear sky and bright sun - but as it got on toward evening, the clouds moved in and softened the light. it cost me some contrast, but also let me get more detail, so fair trade. this was shot across Baker Lake, with Mt. Baker, an active volcano, in the background. looking at this shot, i can't help wondering what those dead trees on the shoreline would look like in fall... i'm gonna mark my calendar to go back up there and find out! taken with a 5D and Tamron SP 24-135 lens at 59mm with a 4ND grad filter, 1/60 @ f/13, then a pass through ReDynaMix to bring out some foreground details and a little tweak in Photoshop to make the colors pop more, and voila!

Oh my but that's too nice for my poor eyes. :? Rocky, that image is beautiful - nice tweaking too.

Interesting looking confluence of clouds in the sky - evidence of competing winds.

Cheers, Dan

I have to agree with Dan. That's a beautiful photo. I am instantly transported to a tranquil place. C'est bon.

thank you, gentlemen... i appreciate your kind words!

Bahadir, this is basically a wider view from the same place. i processed the other one first, but then, when i got to this one, it really jumped out at me... i feel it's a much more balanced and interesting image. in that sense, the other shot could certainly be considered just an appetizer... :G

Awesome! I like the reflection on the water.

Just a curious question, was it possible to catch the color of thesnow capped peak on water?

not from this viewpoint. i could get more water in the foreground, but it was so clear, there was no reflection, just the bottom of the lake... :O
