The Canadian Landscape Contest – Wayne Simpson
Many people are familiar with Lake Minnewanka because of it’s boat tours and scuba diving. Since I already have images of Lake Minnewanka in a familiar light, I thought it would be more interesting to show it in a less familiar way. This particular morning was extremely cold (about -30 C) so the water was much warmer than the air. The result of the huge difference in temperatures was lots of mist which created a very surreal atmosphere. On this morning I produced several of the images in my portfolio, one which includes the boat house (which is out of frame to the left here), and another of a herd of elk (just down the road)… all utilizing this amazing light. I still dream of another chance to make images in these type of conditions.
