Voyageur by jonathoncomfortreed Voyageur by jonathoncomfortreed
Inspiration
The lake draws deep, the cliff reaches high and the sky lasts forever.
The world is big, so big. It's made for wandering. For dreaming and exploring.

There are places out there that are truly marvellous to discover. But it's up to you to find them.


Technique
I went camping with my family last weekend (during my break from camp, ha!); on our last night there my parents and I went canoeing to see the sunset. This was my way to capture the moment.

I brought my camera intending to create a panorama of the sunset and the cliffs, but it didn't work out. The trees blocked the sun pretty early and I'm still waiting to buy a graduated density filter for landscapes like that.
I read a tip somewhere to look behind you when you're trying to shoot a sunset – so I tried it. And then I remembered another tip to work with foreground with landscape pictures – so I tried that too.

I used my wide-angle lens with the smallest f-stop to create the sharp foreground and unfocused background, and tried to balance the edge of the cliff, the bit of forested land and the point of the gunwales – centring it so I could add text after. My favourite part about this photo is the colour transition in the water. I totally rocked the complimentary colour scene, neh?

Edited it with Photoshop and added the text too, hurrah!
