    The camera equipment went back into the bag and we made our way back to the cars. 2km through the forest which we just had seen and photographed from the little Winterberg during an awesome display of light. Fog was hanging in the forest and the show in the sky had been full of color.

    When we were half back at the cars the sun started shining through the trees and instantly our cameras were out again. This time photographing the forest from between the trees. The hoar frost on the forest floor began to melt in the warm light and it all looked like in a fairy tale.

    Hope you like it.

    PS: here's the first part of a tutorial I'm doing on Kwerfeldein.de about my postprocessing workflow for those interested. It's in german but contains some videos so you might be able to follow along anyway. And as I heard google translate does a good enough job with my text ;-)

    PPS: on 500px it looks a little better ;-) 500px.com/photo/3406270

      Wow tolles Bild! Schöner Kontrast zwischen dem bläulichen Dunst und den orange-roten Farbtönen auf dem Waldböden. Die dunklen Baumstämme bieten ein schönes Linienspiel.

      A really beautiful image. I particularly like the light playing on the bracken in the foreground.
