Your #visualsymphony: Callum Snape, Banff (+ win this photograph!)

Where and when was this photograph made?  

This photo of Peyto Lake in Banff National Park, Alberta was captured on a beautiful early summer sunrise in June.

What drew you in to this composition?  

Peyto Lake is an incredibly beautiful place, the 'Wolf's head' shaped lake is surrounded by pristine Alberta wilderness and the lake colour derives itself from the rock flour washed down underneath the Glacier. I wanted to capture not only the lake itself but the surrounding vibrant forest and towering peaks with as little obstruction from the trees in front as possible.

What equipment were you using? 

This scene was captured using the Canon 5D MarkII and the Canon 17-40L lens, an Induro AT114 Tripod. I used a LEE 0.9 soft graduated neutral density filter to distribute the light evenly across the landscape.

Thanks to Callum Snape for letting us share his beautiful photograph and the story behind it.  His work was framed in our handcrafted walnut frame for a 16" x 24" print.  Check out more of Callum's beautiful work on his website or follow him on Instagram, @calsnape.

In addition, were giving away this same print for the next couple days on Instagram.  Check out one of the following accounts to learn how to win it....@travelalberta, @wilderness_culture, @calsnape, or @sawandmitre.

I know you mentioned above that you use an Induro tripod, is that still what you use? What tripod would you recommend for long exposure photography?
