I was walking along the shores of Lake Louise in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, and saw a couple canoeing across the lake. The red canoe really stood out while gliding on top of the glacial turquoise water in the lake. I also like the peaceful still water.
There is also a lighter color streak between the land and the water. I admired the color combination in this photograph. So I automatically shot a bunch of pictures since the colors were perfect together. I am not sure what caused the lighter color streak between the land and the water. It could be a reflection from the sunlight, but I was too busy taking the pictures to investigate where the streak came from.
Whenever I photograph a unique and interesting scene, I am anxious to keep shooting before the lighting or something in the scene changes.
My rule is always to strive to be quick to photograph a scene. Once we lose a particular moment, we can never get it back again. The best way to “get it back again” is with a picture.
Be assured this photograph and color is real and untouched!
