The Weekly Photo – May 21
This is a sunset shot of Mount Outram from Glacier Lake in Banff National Park, Alberta. If you want an early season backpack trip to start the season (snow free by early May), I highly recommend this fairly easy 9 km hike to one of Banff’s hidden gems. I shot this with my Canon EOS-1ds Mark III and a 24mm TS-e lens tilted for maximum depth-of-field. I also used a Singh-Ray Z-sized LB Warming polarizer and a 2-stop Singh-Ray hard-edge grad over the sky and mountain to help even out the exposure. Click on the photo to see a bigger version. It was great to get out in the back-country this past week! Check out what Wayne Simpson and Samantha Chrysanthou posted on their blogs from this trip.
