Dragon's Bones by Kevin  Kroeker


Lake Louise, in Banff National Park, Canada

I just got back from holidays and this is the first image I had a chance to upload. My dad said the drift wood reminded him of dino bones… so this one is for you dad :))

    Gorgeous!!! 183 secs!!! Even with a 10-stop filter (though it’s not mentioned), what time of the day was this taken?

  • Thanks Vikram :))

    I forgot to mention that I did use a 10 stop filter for this one. I took this shot around 7pm.

    Christ mate, this is awesome! The water must have been so still and calm? What are you using to eliminate noise? Please don’t tell me nothing! If you do I’m screwed, as i don’t seem to be able to get away from it at these slow speeds!

  • Thanks Craig :)) I haven’t done any noise reduction. I am looking at getting some software for that purpose though.
