Fujifilm X-Pro2 W/XF10-24mm F4 R OIS | ISO200 10MM F/10 1/210 sec
Moraine Lake is a short drive away from the more celebrated Lake Louise but well worth a visit. Get there as early as entry allows, it fills up fast with tourists and you will be fighting for a parking space and a clear shot of the lake. The distinctive colour is due to light refraction off the rock flour that's deposited from the glacial run-off.
It's really "that" colour...I didn't enhance it in anyway beyond raising the exposure and some minor colour correction.
For the shot I've used the Fujifilm Provia Film Simulation as my base for the editing.
This image is what I call a "One Shot Wonder"
It was a heavily overcast day and I was able to fit the entire scene within the dynamic range of my Fujifilm X-Pro2. In brighter conditions I might have had to use a Neutral Density Grad filter in order to tame the sky. As it was, a Polarizer would have helped to take some of the glare off the water. I could have also bracketed shots and blended the exposures later on....too much work though, I just wanted to enjoy the moment. It's an incredibly serene place to visit.
