Keep going there’s still more!
On the first night of the Jasper Trip, I decided to venture out of Jasper and make a quick stop in British Columbia for an epic sunset!
It’s not that there wasn’t enough in Jasper to shoot, but I really wanted to see this lake because just from Google maps I could tell it would be a great spot. I aimed to get out there a little before sunset, so that I would have enough time to find a decent spot and wait for good light, but due to the smoke in the air all of golden hour made for good shooting.
A big thing I’ve been working on with my photography is trying to find good foreground interest, which can be quite difficult when shoot across a large lake. That’s the reason I ended up with five different compositions, experimenting with using the shoreline, rock outcropping and the waves in the lake.
I’m very interested in hear which image is your favorite, there’s a poll in the video card so you can vote for your favorite or you can leave a comment below letting me know!
I really like how the warm light catches the dandelions in the foreground, in hindsight it probably would have been better to get down nice and close to them to really capture the beautiful glow.

With the wildfires in Northern Alberta there was a lot of smoke in air which created this amazing layering effect in the mountains. I went with B&W for this shot to emphasis the layering.

This was a really interesting time to be shooting this spot because it’s probably more of a sunrise location, but I do like how the reflection of the sun on the lake guides your eye up to the mountains.

Much like the previous shot I like the lines around the sun and in the water, on this shot though I went for a little different style with the edit, really trying to show the haze that was in the sky.

This is always my favorite part of sunset, when you can catch the coldest blues and warmest oranges in the same shot. I’ve always been a fan of high contrast images and through the beauty of nature and a little color theory this shot has some amazing contrast to it!
