Impressions of Autumn
This is an image I made on the last morning of our West Virginia Autumn workshop. We were set up and shooting reflections along Mirror Lake in Canaan Valley. Instead of shooting the typical shot of mountainside reflected in the water, I choose to focus on just the reflections in the water. This created a painterly effect as the there was a gentle breeze moving the water just enough to create the effect but not strong enough to kill the detail in the reflection. I also panned the camera in an upward motion over the course of the 2 second exposure.
