Samantha, Ian McGillvrey and I went on a 5-day backpacking trip to Waterton Lakes National Park in late July. The intent of the trip for me and Sam was primarily a nature hike, although I did manage to get in some shots at sunrise and sunset most days. Here Ian and I present our favorite three big grand landscapes at sunrise. Yes, these are big light, wide lens views of the the park’s landscapes! Sam took the point ‘n shoot camera and no tripod, so she didn’t partake in these early morning low light sessions. To see all three of our ‘alternative’ views of Waterton, stay tuned for the next post. And the video at the end shows a fast 12-minute sunrise at Lone Lake (a frame every 30 seconds) – to see the video larger click here.
