Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at Burnaby Lake Regional Park in Burnaby which is near Vancouver, Canada. It was a beautiful but cold evening. The fog created a nice atmosphere here and the colours of the sunset were so nice.

Info about the photo: This photo is an HDR processed image. I started from 3 RAW files taken with a slightly different exposure. I put the photos together in the program Photomatix in which I created the HDR image. I am not that great with HDR yet and I tend to get strong colours. After that I processed the photo a little bit in photos where I added a little contrast to bring out the colours even more.
Please see my Workshop for the original...which one do you like best? I personally like strong and saturated colours, but that's just a matter of personal taste!

I thought this was kind of a neat result with more details and better colours than the original. Please see my Workshop for the original. I hope you like it!

Thank you for taking your time to have a look!

Some information on Burnaby Lake Regional Park: Burnaby Lake Regional park is located in the city of Burnaby which is a part of the Greater Vancouver area and about 5 minutes driving from my place. This park includes a beautiful lake, a lot of hiking trails and is a great spot for bird watchers. Burnaby Lake Regional park is one of the best spots in the Vancouver area for bird watching, you may find great blue herons, bald eagles, belted kingfishers, osprey and the rare green heron and much more. In the summer time you can rent a canoe to have a closer look at the ducks, beavers and marsh-dwelling turtles.

There are 4 places where you park your car and start your walk. You can circle the lake for example which is about 19km (12mi). On the way you'll find the Wildlife Rescue Association or BC with a beautiful garden that's home to many wild birds. On the North side of the lake is the Nature House which is open in the summer for displays, talks and interpretive nature classes. The fresh air, outdoor exercise, city views, and plenty of wildlife of the two and four-legged variety make this a great spot to enjoy.

Burnaby Lake was created by a glacier 12,000 years ago and its shores were home to sawmills in the late 1800's. Now it is a beautiful protected area for us to enjoy. (Info from the Burnaby City Parks website).
