Image like Chinese Ink Painting

Last week, I went to a photo trip to Lake O’hara, Yoho national park with 21 members from Foothills Camera club. We stayed at the Elizabeth hut for 2 nights. No exception of this year, we had bad weather. I saw the sun light for probably 4 hrs in total in the whole trip. I even experienced my first snow this autumn.

In the morning of the 3rd day, it was really foggy outside. Everybody stayed in the hut and enjoy breakfast and slow start of the day.  I grabbed my camera gear and rushed to the location where I had checked the day before.

Foggy morning - near Elizabeth Hut.

I had a particular image in my head, inspired by Chinese ink painting. I wanted to capture an image of the quiet, monotone scenery  like chinese people painted their scenery with only black ink on paper. At home, I added a tinge of blue to the image as Darwin Wiggett suggested in Outdoor photography magazine. I guess I successfully obtain the image I imagined. Obviously, photos of the gorgeous Canadian Rockies are always appreciated, but these kinds of the introvert images also appeal to people in the long run, I hope.

By the way, I stitched 5 images to make this one image. I used the panorama head built by Greg Nuspel, who is also an excellent photographer in Calgary. You shoud check out his website.
