Fabulous photo! I've been thinking about doing a challenge where something temporary, like the cloud in your photo, matches up with an unrelated object that is permanent.

Behind The Lens

Location

The photo was taken at the lake Eibsee in southern Germany with majestic Zugspitze - the highest peak of Germany - on the background.

Time

It was a beautiful and calm late October day. One of the last really warm days last year which I spent hiking around beautiful lake Eibsee in Bavaria. It was late afternoon, and I wish I could stay longer for a sunset, but since I had to catch the last train home I could not stay longer that day. Well, that's something to try next time, and a great reason to go back!

Lighting

A story with a light was quite funny. I would say we were constantly chasing the sunlight while wandering around Eibsee lake. The game of light was pretty impressive, it looked like the lake itself as well as beautiful forest around were divided into two parts: deep shade and bright blinding sunshine. It was an interesting walk around the lake that day - the sunlight was always ahead of us and always faster. Exactly the case when everything looks better "on the other side".

Equipment

I used Canon EOS 6D and wide angle Canon EF17-40mm f/4L USM, EXIF info: 17mm/ƒ/11/1/3s/ISO 50

Inspiration

Since I moved to Bavaria several years ago I have been feeling extremely lucky to be surrounded by all this Alpine beauty, gorgeous mountains, magical forests, fairytale looking lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Particularly this place proposed many intriguing elements: majestic mountain chain on the background, calm mirroring water in the middle giving that really cool reflection, an interesting looking shore line in the foreground, and a framing of a vibrant trees on the sides. All together it created a spectacular scenery, it was very exciting to be there and to experience that moment, as well as photographing it.

Editing

I did main post processing in Lightroom, and then used Nik collection for some more sophisticated contrast filters. That was it.

In my camera bag

Canon EOS 6D, wide angle lens if I travel to Alps for mountains-cape, particularly EF17-40mm f/4L USM, and Canon EF50mm f/1.4 USM if I plan some portrait shooting as well. Additionally set of ND filters, remote control, tripod. My camera bag is simple.

Feedback

Bavaria is a wonderland for photographers, travellers, and for everybody who can’t imagine their life without mountains, rivers, lakes. It proposes a lot of stunning sceneries any time of the year, but gorgeous autumn colours, and a very beautiful light of a sunny mid-autumn day create a very special atmosphere at the Eibsee lake. Choosing a non-windy day is important if one wants to include lake into the frame, so that water looks still even without ND filters and gives you an amazing reflection of mountain shapes and the sky.
