Convict Lake

I was playing around with this shot today. Took it on a trip with Ken a few years back, had never processed it. Very pristine and lovely lake. This shot was taken at ƒ11, 1/6th of a second, iso 64. Obviously has to be on a tripod at this speed.

It is very hard to expose properly in these sorts of midday shots from the Sierra Lakes. Lots of crosslight. Some sections are so bright and over exposed, others are very dark. I wish that I had a split grad filter at the time. My circular polarizer work leaves something to be desired. But with a little love, processing and care, it still makes a quite nice image.
