Tree Crossing

24 hours of rain and 6° celsius (43° Fahrenheit) is not something you are hoping for during summer camping holidays in the mountains. But it is what it is (the rest of the holidays was sunny and warm).

I knew I wouldn't see any mountain, nor clear views. So vantage points were out of scope. My intention was to go out early in the morning for a woodland and creek photo shoot. And how glorious that was!

The hardest part was to not slip and fall, break any bones or gear. The stream, the forest and the fog gave so many opportunities and subjects to shoot.

At this steep climb I found some rapids that turned into a decent waterfall. The two leaning trees standing over the creek shaped into a portal with the rushing water underneath.

I took a vertical panorama with my widest lens and a nodal slide, all bracketed shots. That was quite a lot a frames to merge into this vertorama.
