The Approach

I’d been to this spot a number of times, but I’d never experienced conditions like this. Saying that I was excited for this to unfold would be a considerable understatement. As always, temperamental changing weather brought magic. This was the front end of a storm rolling in - the combination of still water, warm light breaking through the clouds, and haze/rain in the distance didn’t last long. After just a few minutes the wind picked up destroying the reflection - if you look close you can see the rain had already started when I captured this image.


Also, one of my favourite things about editing and reviewing images is finding the little details I missed when I was shooting. If you look close on the right hand side of the image you’ll see a fellow camper in awe of the scene unfolding as well. I had no idea he/she was in this scene when I shot it - I was too excited about the conditions! I still have no idea who this is, but I like to think it's someone I spoke to while camping there. Their body language really echoed how I was feeling in the moment frankly - just drop what you’re doing and get a look at this!
