ENJOYING THE LANDSCAPE
A day on the lake is something I wish I could experience more especially if there’s a magnificent weather involved.
Luckily enough, I was granted with bright sky, brisk breeze, fluffy clouds during a lovely afternoon spent at the Misurina Lake last September. It was a real treat that allowed me to enjoy shooting some landscape photographs focusing on the reflections shown on the lake.
Landscape photography is hard work, and that’s never stressed enough: the main challenge of any landscape photographer is the huge amount of patience involved waiting for the best light, as well as the right tools properly set, the heavy gear, the awkward locations and/or positions you have to reach and stay in.
I admire photographers who are creative enough to walk off from certain clichés and create a different vision for landscapes (Ansel Adams and his trees are a major masterpiece in inspiration and expressiveness in this sense), but on the same time I admit that I love enjoying a panorama which is effortless, clean and natural. Simplicity, after all, is the key to look at the world and be delighted from it, right?
So, having been lucky enough to have had a limpid day, I decided I wanted to highlight the enchanting beauty of the symmetry that the Misurina lake created with its own reflections, turning the whole scenes into some sort of watercolour effect during a very glorious end of summer sunset.
