The Power Of Rock


BassfinLake_2491

One of my favorite lakes last year was Bassfin Lake on Matagamasi Lake Road. This lake has unique rock structures along its shoreline that makes for great photographing. The rock formations are quite colorful in that you have pink and a very strong reddish color. If you wait until dusk that reddish color really stands out. The above photo was taken in a back bay on the West end of the Bassfin Lake. The wind had now calmed down with the approach of dusk.

I was situated on a small rock island. I set the tripod up low to the ground. The reason for this was to eliminate the expanse of water before me. I wanted to show the detail of the rock in front of me. The angle of this rock drops from top to bottom. By doing this I am able to tie in the composition with the reflections on the water. There is a bit of sparse vegetation to break up the rock color. The other thing is the beautiful rusty red colored rock that makes this unique. There is just enough sky to give a hint of dusk. So with my Canon 7D, I captured this lovely composition.

I live in a country of rock, trees and water. It is just wonderful to be a part of it and to be able to capture these special moments. While that is it for now. Thank you for stopping by. My hope is that I can give you peace of mind when you observe my work. So until next time happy trails.

  6. This is great composition and balance of light. One question, why the black across the top? Beautiful regardless:)

    • On my original there is no black like in my composition like that.
      The theme I use is dark so that may also have an effect.

      Ken
