Last night a friend of mine (his blog here) and I went to shoot this photo and we knew a head of time wading through part of the Bow River was going to be part of the plan. On Tuesday evening my son and I had gone to a spot right by here to shoot some photos that didn’t turn out exactly how I had hoped. While we were there I noticed a tiny island of rocks that would be a perfect location for this photo. So I told my friend Nathan about it and I we packed some sandals for walking through river and headed back to the spot. With pants rolled up and gear in hand we crossed the shallow part of the river to the tiny island and let the sun go down just enough for this shot. The river was cold and it was windy, but the picture turned out exactly how I had imagined, so it was worth the effort :).
Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f4 IS ~ Settings: f/25 – 4 Frame HDR – ISO 100
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
Nice shot…the things we go through sometimes for our shots. But is sounds like a fun time. At least you had a friend with you.
For sure hey! Thank you and yes it was good to have a buddy along :). Just incase I got swept away by the river lol.
It’s beautiful – I love how still the river looks, the lighting, the wisps of clouds with a touch of pink and the lit up building! Well done Rob! 🙂
Thank you very much Diana 🙂
that water looks like glass! So pretty.
Ya it’s a cool effect :).
This picture was worth the effort! The water looks like ice. Did you take any shorter exposures? I would love to see how they compare. Very beautiful.
I think I did. I’ll take a look when I get home tonight k :).
