Description

A tarn near our Laguna Collicocha tent site provided the perfect reflecting pool as the sun sank below the Cordillera Negra in Peru's Cordillera Blanca. I had originally hoped to photograph alpenglow above the Santa Cruz massif to the east, but cloud cover obscured the peaks. I raced back toward the west where compositions were found to compliment the lighting conditions. 3 stop grad. NG filter, hard edge was used to balance the brightness of the scene.

Exif: F Number: 16, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 4/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 32.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
