I have been pretty busy so far this month with catching up on processing images. November is the ideal month for that: the leaves have fallen here in the Alps and there is not a lot of snow yet. I did free up some time last week to scout a few long exposure locations near Lac de Neuchâtel in the west of Switzerland. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of wind, so no images with silky lakes and clouds this time.
As you can judge from the colourful sunset image above, I did get a nice moody sunset at the end of the day. I shot quite a few images while this sunset scene evolved. Partly to shoot it with different perspectives, but mostly because the swan didn’t want to stay put. So I have a lot of sunset images with a blurry swan as well as images featuring his/her “less photogenic” side. This one came out quite well though. Hope you like it!
I used a Lee 1-stop graduated ND filter to dim the sky just a bit. I processed the image with Adobe’s Lightroom 4.2.
