The moon appears to blaze as bright as a midday sun, but the midnight blue still shines through. Taken early April at approx. 10:30pm using a 3sec shutter.
Mount Rundell is on the left and Sulphur Mountain is center. Vermillion Lakes, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

    Love this!
    The reflections have been great at our lake lately too, and I’ve been trying to catch something that does them justice… but my favorite that I took was day-time and not as beautiful as yours! Love the colors and reflections!

  • Thanks Corri…glad you like! we got lucky this night in april…the lake was like glass and the moon was so bright that it was like shooting in day light and it was cold :o Keep going out…eventually all the elements will line up for that great pic you want to get :)
