Lake Starnberg (German: Starnberger See) called Lake Würm (German Würmsee) until 1962, and also known as Fürstensee — is Germany's fifth largest freshwater lake in terms of area and, due to its great average depth, the second largest in terms of water volume. The lake and its surroundings are an unincorporated area within the rural district of Starnberg; the lake itself is the property of the state of Bavaria and is administered by the Bavarian Administration of State-Owned Palaces, Gardens and Lakes.

Behind The Lens

Location
I shot this picture in Starnberger See near Munich, Bavaria. I'm a self taught photographer.
Time
This was taken around 9:15 in summer at golden hour.
Lighting
It was all natural light during the sunset.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D5200 + 18-55 kit lens. A beginner tripod and ND filter to smoothen the lake and cloud movements.
Inspiration
The thing is I was looking for a seascape shot, but I couldn't find it. As I turned my back to the the and looked at a small harbor there. I saw the reflection of the sunset glowing in near red color on the clouds above the harbor. I took out my ND filter and that's how I got this shot after the sun was actually down.
Editing
I did basic retouching in this. Opening shadows a little bit lowering highlights and also color correcting in order to recreate the scene I saw the other day.
In my camera bag
Now I have Nikon D800 + my beloved 24-120 f/4 lens. A tripod and an ND filter. That's about it.
Feedback
This kind of lakes are very good in everytime of the day for different purposes. During sunrise and sunset is the best light you can get in terms of color and intensity. Also during night if there is a clear sky superb for astrophotography. The thing is there are tremendous sceneries around lakes. The water, trees, mountains,... . So you'll never run out of foreground and background elements.
