Wow. Don't even know where to start with this image. I love the detail in the leaves contrasted against the softness of the water, and the detail in the tree trunks too. The colors are amazing, but not overdone. Nicely done!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is made in Delden, the Netherlands. I took a small detour for this photo while driving to work.
Time
This photo I took on a slightly misty morning, last autumn. For me, the combination of mist and autumn colors is just perfect. So during autumn and when it is misty and I am always anxious to get out and shoot some photos. I like especially forests and trees.
Lighting
Mist always gives these nice mysterious lighting conditions. Although most of the mist was already gone when I arrived here, it was just enough to provide this beautiful soft light.
Equipment
I made this photo with my good, old Sony NEX-5N on a tripod. This camera has been my beloved working horse for several years now.
Inspiration
The location is a location that I already know for many years. I have been there many times, during different conditions. But this time it was different. All was right: the light, the colors of the leaves, the reflections. Probably one of the best times that I have ever been here.
Editing
I always apply post-processing as I always shoot in RAW. For this one, the post-processing was rather limited though. Some color and contrast corrections were the main changes I made.
In my camera bag
I try to travel light. I bought a small mirror-less camera such that I could easily take it with me while mountain biking and hiking. I mainly use my 18-200 lens which is perfect for the kind of photos I like. Next to that lens, I often take my 12 mm prime with me. But in the forests, I hardly use is. For pure landscape photos though, I love it. For the rest I take a bunch of filters with me for long exposure shots, but all in all my amount of equipment is rather limited and light!
Feedback
The eastern part of the Netherlands has some very beautiful forests and avenues. Especially during autumn and when there is some mist, it is very beautiful for photography. So don't think that you cannot take beautiful photos while there is fog. That is what I always thought as a beginner and that is always what many other beginners think. My biggest misconception ever. But do use a tripod for better results. I have a very light one that is easy to carry around and it ensures that when there is not some much light, it still have perfectly sharp photos at low ISO. Revisit locations often and search for beautiful places nearby such that you can go there often.
