First Light – Eibsee, Germany
Real sunrise happens very late when you’re surrounded by mountains. Eibsee lake is a perfect example of such a location. By the time the sun reaches your subject, is already high and the light very harsh. Luckily, there are many other components that make the photograph: the burning fog, spots of light on colorful trees, amazing reflection in the lake or a small harbor, as it is the case for this picture.
All this definitely makes it worth sticking around and waiting for magic to happen.
This photo was taken in the late morning at Elbsee lake, Germany.
Photo details: Nikon D800; 28-300mm f3.5-5.6; 1/40 sec at f/8; ISO 100.
