Wild Places by Sean_Bagshaw

From the Opabin plateau above Lake O’hara in the Canadian Rockies back in September. This was the morning we made the 9 mile hike in the dark in order to reach this spot by sunrise. It is one of the most glorious alpine cirques I have been to.

5D III, 16mm, polarizer. Three exposures blended using layer mask techniques for dynamic range: 1/2, 1/4 and 1/13 seconds at f/16, ISO 100.

Opabin Larch Reflections by phillips_chip

A pretty hard hike starting at 4:00am led us up to this amazing spot in Yoho National Park. Usually one can take the bus, but the bus fills up months in advance. Also, you need to stay the night in the lodge or campground which also fills up months in advance. So, me and some fellow photographers (Zack Schnepf, Adrian Klein, and Sean Bagshaw) hiked the road up to this spot. I just converted my Facebook profile into a business page, so if you get a chance and want to follow my work over there, the link is: http://ift.tt/1PaDRct
