I was delighted with the way this shot came out. I saw this couple walking out from the ice castle, hand in hand, so fired a few shots off… I feel it’s just such a beautiful shot, capturing the romance of not just our special day, but others too.
After the tears and squealing, Laura was quick to get the phone out and spread the joy… time to get some shots off then :) I was really pleased that I managed to get some images of the event as it really documents the moment well I feel.
Shot taken during our 2010 holiday to Banff (February 8th, 2010), in the Canadian Rockies, Alberta. 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 Moët 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. Taken with a Panasonic Lumix G1, 14-45mm lens.
Much, much better when viewed in large.
