'Lost Lake': The Ethereal, Foggy Lanscapes of British Columbia

Owen Perry’s ‘Lost Lake’ series was taken near his home in Whistler, BC. The landscapes of 'Lost Lake' are almost surreal, with their blue-black shadows and dense forests. The series features the lake and the mountainous terrain surrounding it as early-morning fog creeps over the water and across the trees.

A designer and photographer, Owen Perry specializes in landscape and travel photography. Describing his favorite places to shoot, Perry says “I love all natural terrain-deserts to snow-capped peaks. However, there’s something about British Columbia that seems to capture my imagination. There’s a special raw beauty there that stops you in your tracks. You’re just like, ‘is that actually real?’ I love trying to capture and share that wonder with people…”

Mindful of the landscape’s risk of destruction by pollution and development, Perry says that, while it may be an “idealistic” way of thinking, he hopes that “If I can show people how amazing this place is, we’ll all be less keen to destroy it with pipelines, oil tankers, clear cutting, or dams.”

For ‘Lost Lake’ Perry shot with a Nikon D600 and two Zeiss lenses-a 28mm f/2 and an 85mm f/1.4. The series was edited with Lightroom and VSCO.

Here's a novel idea.. just a simple comment. "Beautiful pics"
...and no link added to ride the coat tails of your story, another artist's work.... or to advertise anything spammy.

Great shots of Lost Lake. Being from BC myself, it is so amazing how many little hidden lakes and wooded areas there are that would make any photographer weak in the knees. ESPECIALLY around Whistler. Great little article Ruby :)
