Land of the Midnight Sun

This is an evening twilight view of Hidden Lake near Whitehorse, about an hour after the sun disappeared. Twilight is a great time for landscape photography because the clouds are still catching some rays then reflecting soft, low-contrast light. In the North, it never really gets very dark at night in the summer, just less light, as the sun stays below the horizon.

 

Technical: Using layer masks in CS5, I hand blended 2 exposures, one for the sky and a longer exposure for the foreground.
