Hot Vermilion [explored]

Hot Vermilion [explored]

Mt Rundle reflected in a hotspring pool in Vermilion Lakes near Banff Alberta Canada. We had a pretty terrific, though cold, sunrise running through a range of colors over a good 20 minute period. Took this shot a bit later in the sequence, just before the sun peeked over Mt Rundle. Used the Pentax K3ii "pixel shift" feature for added detail and color accuracy, but not sure it made that much difference here. Didn’t use much in the way of filters in this one, just stopped down and 1.5s exposure. I may have had the graduated ND filter on to even out the top but my Lee filter is broken so I ended up taking it off as it kept threatening to fall off, so I think this particular shot had used no filters.

Good friend and fellow photography addict Kevin Benedict, captured a different color range a few minutes earlier and about 20 feet away in this photo: flic.kr/p/CwkJf7

By great coincidence, Kevin and I both ended up in Banff over Christmas so we met up early on Boxing Day (Dec 26th for my American friends) for some shooting of the Banff Springs hotel and Vermilion Lakes. Luckily I was well dressed because the temperature was about -15C (before windchill). I was pleasantly surprised that the cameras did not seem to have any troubles.
