I have been keeping myself busy so far this month with catching up on my backlog of photographs to be processed. The leaves have fallen here in Switzerland, and there is not a lot of snow around just yet. So, November is the ideal month to catch up on various things, including processing photographs. I did free up some time last week to scout different long exposure photography locations along the shores of Lac de Neuchâtel in the west of Switzerland. I did this together with fellow photographer Dominique Dubied. As you can judge from the lake landscape photograph to the right, we got lucky. We witnessed a bold and very colourful lakeside sunset at the end of the day.
I shot quite a few photographs while this sunset scene evolved. Partly to capture it with different perspectives, but mostly because the swan didn’t want to stay put. So I have a lot of sunset photographs with a blurry swan as well as photos featuring his/her “less photogenic” side. This one came out quite well, though. I hope you like it!
The viewpoint for this sunset is at the eastern shores of Lac de Neuchâtel, near Cudrefin, a small municipality there. I captured this photograph with a Nikon D800E and a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. The settings were: 60mm, ƒ/8, 1/8s and ISO 400. A graduated ND filter balanced the exposure of the photograph a bit.
Cheers, Johan 🙂
