I loved the way I framed this shot. I was fully aware that we were en route to that frozen lake which lies in the background for me to propose. A shot for posterity if ever there was one. Laura hadn’t a clue… :)
Shot taken during our 2010 holiday to Banff (February 8th, 2010), in the Canadian Rockies, Alberta, Canada. This image was taken on the morning I proposed at Lake Louise. 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
Processing carried out in CS5 and Nik Software’s Silver Efex. Image shot with a Panasonic Lumix G1.
Much, much better when viewed in large.
