One evening while at Horseshoe lake in Ontario’s Parry Sound / Muskoka region I was watching the sky for possible sunset photography when I noticed the clouds were blowing by fairly quickly. Although there wasn’t much in the way of color, I thought the movement in the cloud formations would provide an interesting element to the composition that would make-up for the lack of stunning sunset colors. I knew that I wanted to record the forest at the edge of the lake as a silhouette to hide the boats and docks so I did not use a grad filter to even out the lighting. I exposed for the sky and allowed the forest to go black. An exposure time of 30 seconds recorded nice movement to the blowing cloud formations.
