I love the way the foreground trees and the shadows on the snow create leading lines to the boat.

Behind The Lens

Location
In Bispgården in the middle of Sweden
Time
It was around 14.00 The winter days are very short, but this is taken in march where the sun is going down at 16.00
Lighting
I had some problems with getting the right angle. There was 1 meter snow and I wanted the sun beams between the trees.
Equipment
I used a Nikon 810 and a tamron SP 15-30 mm wich gife me a big wide angle. I used a tripod.
Inspiration
To come here I needed to walk a couple of hours with my sleight and the last km in very deep snow. Coming here there where only moose tracks. That means that there have not been humans in at least 4 month.
Editing
Not much processing to do. I put some highlight out and brightened the shadows and blacks a bit
In my camera bag
Cleaning gear. battery, tripod, remote,
Feedback
In this case it took 4 hours of very tiredsome walk to get to this place. It is worth the effort, because a photo and even the experience is ever lasting. This photo have got a enormous story to tell. This story will be not seen by other people, but it is for me. And that is a good thing to remember. All the photos are in the first place for me. It is a proces, a experience resulting in a creation.
