Moraine Lake, near Banff, Canada, is an amazing place to spend a summer morning. First light reveals towering peaks glowing warm from the morning sun, and glacier-fueled waters reveal ice-blue reflections. The dynamic range in such situations makes it impossible to capture the beauty with one exposure. This image was created from five exposures blended in Photomatix.
