I went back into my archives today and found this wonderful waterfall that I shot in Banff National Park. It just sparked many memories of a great trip into Canada and something I need to do again soon. The Banff area is just amazing with large glaciers and peaks that just rise straight up and tower over you. It’s like the Grand Tetons, but on both sides of you. The glaciers in the area make for some amazing lakes and waterfalls. I think I could have spent the entire day shooting this hillside filled with waterfalls that spilled down off the from Moraine Lake. So here’s today’s image – Hillside Waterfall Banff National Park.
- Use a circular polarizer (CPL) to cut glare from the water.
- Use if the tilt-shift lens allowed me to make the waterfall look more straight up and down and shift things in to focus at a lower aperture. It’s the same concept of capturing tall buildings and the tilt-shift allows you to straighten out lines.
