Another shot from Canmore, Alberta. The mountains on the photo is made up of three peaks namely; Ship’s Prow, Ehegay Nakoda and Haling Peak. This is a shot I made when the sun was beginning to rise and it’s first light showering the peaks a phenomena often called Alpen Glow.
As per wikipedia –
ALPEN GLOW is an optical phenomenon in which a horizontal red glowing band is observed on the horizon opposite to the sun. This effect occurs when the Sun is just below the horizon. Alpenglow is easiest to observe when mountains are illuminated but can also be observed when the sky is illuminated through backscattering.
Since the Sun is below the horizon, there is no direct path for the light to reach the mountain. Instead, light reflects off airborne snow, water, or ice particles low in the atmosphere. These conditions differentiate between a normal sunrise or sunset and alpenglow.

A path of peril, as waters below this dark pathway is melted ice and water free flowing. A simple mistake can crack the ice we are standing. This is the surreal scene of Vermillion lake in Banff National park last March 2014.

Road to Mordor
Jasper Lake in Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada in Winter seems to be a barren land, with sand dunes frozen and thin ice sheets forming just above the surface. The place looks like taken out of a dream or nightmare. With the sun setting and casting its red glow, the scene seems like a movie, an epic journey starting.
Thanks for viewing.

What makes a landscape photo dynamic? In today’s visually laden media, you will find so many photos uploaded but there will be a few that catches your attention. Photos that “engages” you, or makes you look longer than usual. There are many visual cues that make these photos stand out. In my opinion these photos usually contains the following;
*Light and Color. The possession of inviting colors makes the viewer more attractive to it. Studies have been proven that colors play a part in a photo’s success in the social media and photo sites. Warm and vivid colors in my experience are almost magnets to more views and hits.
*Engaging Design. The use of lines and elements that employs a visual path. That makes the viewer see the entire image from point A to point B. Diagonal lines and curves are dynamic lines that provides displacement or movement.
*Elements of Motion or absence of it. The appearance an element moving or the absence of the movement creates intrigue to the viewer. It defies the common logic and makes the viewer look longer. You have to make sure that these elements are used together with an effective visual design.
These are the basic foundation that I believe makes the photo dynamic. There is no magic or mystery involved. No complicated mathematical configurations or degrees. Often most, being out there and practicing makes your chances of capturing dynamic landscapes better.
Photo was taken in Canmore, Alberta

This was taken after the alpen glow where the sun starts to bathe the scene with golden auburn light. The mountain on the left is actually made up of three peaks namely; Ship’s Prow, Ehegay Nakoda and Haling Peak. It is one of the most photogenic peaks one can photograph as the three peaks forms a crown, a jewel for the town of Canmore.

Another amazing perfective shot of Canadian rockies during our trip in Alberta.
This mountain is part of the three peaks they called it the three sisters? namely; Ship’s Prow, Ehegay Nakoda and Haling Peak . Truly a paradise to shoot landscape photography.
