With this beautiful winter scenery I spent most of the weekend outside. This one was taken yesterday morning. As I did not expect a red sunrise I was focused on macro when a deep red horizon appeared. Unfortunately I was on a place which is not suitable for landscape photography (too many farmhouses with big stables) so the only option I had was to pick out some detail and zoom.....fortunately I found these cigars (also called Common Bulrush).
Canon 7D; tripod; remote release; 35-350mm at 95mm, 1/40s + flash at F5.6 and ISO100
For a decent composition I had to lean on the ice but two metres behind the water was open so it was an exciting operation. Due to the cold (that morning it was ‘only’ –11,6 degrees Celsius) the manual focus of my lens did not work properly anymore. But, the worst thing was that only a few minutes later somebody was entering the area and although he had the choice to walk into diverse directions he walked into mine (I think that a photographing woman in the field is like a magnet to men). As soon he reached me he started to talk.....that he was a hunter (lucky me); despite my non-speech signals he stayed around too long. After he continued his walk I just wanted to continue when I saw a luminous jacked in my frame.....the next male walker and of course he came to me and started talking......I will be happy when sun rises earlier in a few months!!!!!
