Shot taken during our 2010 holiday to Banff (February 8th, 2010), in the Canadian Rockies. This image was taken on the morning I proposed at Lake Louise, Alberta, Canadian Rockies. We spent the morning skiing in the Lake Louise resort, before actually moving on to the actual Lake Louise where I found a spot, got down onto one knee on the frozen lake and popped the question to a resounding and tearful YES! I had also been skiing all day with a bottle of Moet champagne in my backpack, with two plastic glasses too… glad I didn’t tumble :o

This actual shot was right at the beginning of our day and I thought was so beautiful I actually contemplated proposing here instead. I am glad I didn’t however, but still, WOW, this inversion was amazing!

Processing carried out in CS5 and Nik Software’s Silver Efex.

Much, much better when viewed in large.
