Alpine Lake at Dawn

Posted By on Mon, Feb 20, 2012 at 6:01 PM


 

Living in Central Oregon I am always reminded of my old stomping grounds in Switzerland. What Sparks Lake is to me here in Oregon, Seealpsee  was in my old country.

You have to walk up to this Lake which takes about 30 minutes. To catch the first light and the red glow on the rocks you the trail in the dark. This image was captured with a film camera and Fuji Velvia Film. That film had only 50 ISO and really had to be shot at 40 ISO so it got exposed right. Naturally a tripod was and still is essential for most landscape shots. The morning I took this image we had  one of those perfect late summer days in Switzerland when the air is fresh and calm and the sky has that deep stunning blue. Days we take for granted in Central Oregon  but in Switzerland and west of the Cascades are are hard to find.

I will be teaching a weekend workshop this spring on the top of the mountain you see in this photo. Mount Saentis has a Restaurant and a hotel on Top. The View taken from there is truly spectacular. I took the second photo one winter evening right after Mountains and it felt truly like the top of the world.
