One Fifty-Five by Jordan-Roberts One Fifty-Five by Jordan-Roberts

Banks Lake/Highway 155, Eastern Washington.

Highway 155 wraps around a massive butte along the Banks Lake. Anyone from this area knows exactly where this is located. Highway 155 (formally known as the Coulee Corridor) is a National Scenic Byway that easily rivals views found in Utah's southeastern desert. This photo made me want to pack my bags and go on a road trip.

The style of this photo goes against my usual taste. I went for harder light and the blown highlights in the lake were on purpose. It adds to the feeling I was aiming for in this image. I usually go for softer lighting with smoother blends. Hope you enjoy!

Great work! I love the colors and composition. Absolutely perfect!
Can I ask what filters did you used here to achieve the perfect exposure both on land(or water) and sky? Thanks!

Thanks! The composition is off I know, if I could go back I would eliminate the rock on the left and include more of the butte on the right. My reasoning at the time was to show the scale of the lake and with nothing on the left side of the image, it wouldn't be possible. But anyway, I still think it works well enough. I used a polarizer for it, like on all of my images.
