When I first arrived here the golden sun was just behind me. I quickly setup and used a 2-grad hard to hold back the sky. I only got a couple of shots before the wind came up and distorted the reflection.

Another postcard from Canada, which makes me want to visit this country even more. You're lucky to capture such beautiful scenery. The yellow tones and the depth in the photo are superb. Congrats.

Nice shot Derrald, super contrast and great lines. Color is great but I love the clear water with reflection. The asymmetry front to back with the water in the fg showing more cloud that the sky portion works great.

Marvellous light. Great composition, POV, colors and sharpness. All is perfect. We even see both reflection and stones under water.
A great shot,

You got lucky then, with no wind on the surface for the time you took the shot.
Marvellous landscape. Do d you use the bracketing method here or is it one shot??
Great work, I like it very much,

This is so bleeping beautiful, the best reflection that I've seen so far, the water is so still almost like a mirror. Excellent and very successfully done.

This photo is fabulous by its light and colors, it's so beautiful !
The composition is perfect, the reflection also, and I like these stones emerging from the water.

A fine image of late day gold! Your composition presents amazing depth of field and I really like how the foreground has just enough interest to lead the viewer into the depth of this scene. Great shot and thanks for sharing. Gerald

Yes, you're lucky with the reflection here and it's a perfect landscape to use the Grad Hard filters. I only have soft ones, since I thought I wouldn't stumble upon landscape where a Hard Grad would work well. But this is a perfect example of a landscape where you'd hope to have the Grad Hard filter in your bag.
The light in the distance is wonderful. The reflection on the water in the foreground is very well balanced; not distorting the stones on the bottom and not too vague to not be able to recognize the clouds in it. Very well done!

Great photograph Derrald! I shouted 5D the moment I opened it. The resolution and quality of the image is so good. That 17-40 and the 5D is turning to be my dreamlike setup. Exposure is perfect and your color rendition is so natural. It's perfect.

Nice to see that you are back to posting. This is, hands-down, the best shot of Maligne Lake I've ever seen. Normally I don't much care for pictures of that lake, but this is fabulous. Your sense of depth is great, as is your composition, but the lighting is what makes this shot. Journey of Light indeed! Great job in every respect.
