Mont Tremblant is a landscape photographer’s candy store. Whether you’re there to enjoy the winter wonderland as you swoosh down the ski slopes, or sip on some hot coco while watching the leaves turn, there’s always something spectacular to capture with your lens.
I have been there many times, but this was my first summer adventure. And believe me, it did not disappoint! We stayed at Blueberry Lake which is ideal for anyone looking to pamper themselves at a luxury cottage for the weekend. While the lake is tiny, it still gives you access to all of the nature that the Mont Tremblant area has to offer.
Here are a few pictures that I took only a few steps away from the cottage. They were all shot handheld with my Olympus OM-D EM-5 and the RAW images were post processed in Lightroom. How did I get the deep blue sky and emerald green foliage? With a little help from my Hoya circular polarizer. It’s not a high-end filter but it did the trick. Every photographer needs one of these in their toolbox as you can see from the results. Just make sure you don’t order the $2 kind from eBay.
I also tried taking a few long exposure pictures of the clear night sky but I simply didn’t have the patience to sit in the dark as various unidentified bugs bit into my sweet flesh. Next time I’ll make sure to bring some protection to help with activities in the dark.
