As I was getting my first actual look at Moraine Lake, I recalled a photo of the lake I had seen in a magazine some time back that instantly captivated me with its surreal colors.On this day at dawn, I managed to reach Moraine Lake just in time and hurriedly searched for a vantage point. The rising sun was largely obscured by low-lying clouds at first but my patience paid off when the golden rays managed to pierce through momentarily, just enough time for a few captures.The 3-stop Gradual Neutral Density filter was the perfect choice to hold the details in the clouds and balance the difference in exposure contrast between the foreground and background elements.
