Bled in summer is wonderful, Bled in winter must be truly enchanting. Your picture is superb.

It must have been cold to wait for this moment of the fairy tale, but it was worthy.

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken at one of the most stunning places in Slovenia, lake Bled.
Time
Winter morning at lake Bled is what I was waiting all winter.
Lighting
The soft purple/pink light gives a very fairytale like atmosphere which was exactly what I was looking for.
Equipment
Nikon D800 + Nikkor 28-120mm lens + tripod
Inspiration
I was waiting eagerly for the first cold winter morning after the snowy day. Finally the conditions were just as I wanted them to be. Still lake, beautiful pink/purple morning tones, snow on the trees and some fog for mystic atmosphere.
Editing
I do normal post processing in lightroom: - correct the WB if necessary - I adjusted colors a bit to emphasize the purple tones for a more fairy tale look. - I adjusted the curve to bring out the details in shadows and tone the highlights down a bit
In my camera bag
- Nikon D800 - Nikkor 14-24mm lenses - Nikkor 28-120mm lens - Sigma macro 105mm lens - tripod
Feedback
Well the hardest part with this image is to wait for perfect conditions. Since winters are getting warmer, days like this are very rare. In the last few winters, there was maybe 3 or 4 days like this at lake Bled. This year, this was the only day the conditions were exactly as i wanted them.
