The water reservoir tower Château d'eau du Peyrou was build 1768 by architect Henri Pitot and is still in use. The water is coming via the aquaeduct of St. Clement, which I have shown already some time ago. The building is part of the Promenade du Peyrou, a park within Montpellier.

Behind The Lens

Location
My family was at vacation in the near of Montpellier, France. The photo was taken in a park called "Promenade du Peyrou", which is in the center of the city.
Time
It was taken at the late morning.
Lighting
Because this day was somehow cloudy, the hard contrasts at a sunny day where no problem. It was a very calm day...the water in the foreground was a perfect mirror.
Equipment
It was shot with my Sony alpha 7 r2 with the "always on" lens FE 24-70 F4 ZA OSS from Sony/Zeiss. It is my perfect travel equipment. No flash, no tripod. Just this light-weight camera, which is my standard equipment for urban exploration.
Inspiration
No wind at this time. The water was the perfect mirror and this was the starting point for the photo. It's a natural reflection, not a "photoshop" reflection.
Editing
I used a LR preset to increase the details of the clouds and adjusted the saturation of the colors. The cropping was done to underline the "perfect mirror".
In my camera bag
I have now two bags since I have now 2 bodies: Nikon D800 and Sony ?7 II. It depends what I want to do. If I am on a hike I use the Sony with the Vario-Tessar® T* FE 24–70 mm F4 ZA OSS. Somtimes I use my wife's lenses Sony Makro G OSS mit FE 90 mm F2.8 and Sony FE 70–200 mm F4 G OSS (if she allows...)
Feedback
I do not like photos, which are completely done at photoshop. You can see a lot of "reflections of water" where no water was even in the near. A perfect reflection needs no wind. This is mostly the case in the morning. In the afternoon wind is usually coming up and such a photo would not be possible anymore. Take care that the waterline is horizontal :-)
