"Secluded spot" in Lynn Valley Canyon, Lynn Valley Park, North Vancouver, BC.

I found this beautiful quiet place by a coincidence, there is no official trail there. Lynn Valley Park was crowded that day, 25C, sunny... So I was just walking around and trying to save my day, somehow. Suddenly I saw a hidden trail leading from the official route, so I was following my instincts and at the end I was rewarded with the most beautiful view of this hiking season so far :). Nobody else was there, except me, just one guy came about 30 mins after me, local, young experienced mountaineer. He told me, that this place is well know for locals, but still not discovered by the crowds. The reason is, probably, that the path there is pretty steep and you need to have at least some hiking/climbing experience...This is my first ever try of CPL and ND grad filters on such as scene, it was not easy, but at the end I am pretty happy with the result :).

ND4 + ND2 KOOD grads and KOOD CPL on Cokin P system holder were used.

"ETTR" (Exposure to the right) shooting in RAW technique was used as well. And yeah, it really works :)
