Shot for the Day (16 September 2016)

Still in the Canadian Rockies, I tried to shoot the famous Moraine Lake, situated close to Lake Louise, a few times but to no avail.  In the end, it took me three attempts to capture this dawn scene.  First time, I wondered into the forest jutting out into the lake on the right.  I was spooked by a bear and decided a shot was not worth a mauling.  The second attempt was marred by terrible weather.  Third time lucky.  The light lasted about 5 minutes before clouding over.

The solitude of the morning was somewhat dispensed with when I was interviewed by a Japanese film crew, who turned up too late to capture the dawn and wanted to use my photographs.

I was staying in a small motel in Banff and had scouted this location out the previous day.  The light was falling to my right on the lakeside but I loved the dawn vanilla skies above the mountain on the other side of the lake.
