Touch of Light

January 9, 2015

Autumn morning on the shore of "Lac des Cerces" situated in the French Alps.
The sunlight filtering between the clouds and illuminates the Grand Galibier massif that is reflected in the waters of lake of Cerces.
I climbed to the lake a bit worried about the cloudy skies, I was already convinced that I would not have seen the light. However I was rewarded by a beautiful warm light dawn and then from these shafts of light that came and went, excellent condition for landscape photography that has allowed me to create this shot.

16mm · f/11.0 · 1/5s · ISO 200

Recently did a trek in those mountains, I can say it's a really nice retranscription of colors and atmoshpere we can find over there during fall.

Beautiful tones and a great composition, my eye is drawn though the image and to the range of mountains in the background.
Great work!

Great exposure. Strong picture

Gorgeous. Love the colour palette. Did you adjust that much or is that pretty much how it came out of the camera?
