Red Horse Cirrus

Wispy cirrus ice crystals of the west side of a ridge of high pressure can be challenging to capture. I needed my three key colours of blue to match the subtle hues of the cirrus. This is the view looking northeasterly from the the entrance to the west basin of Red Horse Lake after paddling through the Narrows. I wanted to create a rhythm in the clouds and to maintain that tempo in the flagged trees and the choppy water as well.
