Something from nothing

Last summer I went on a photography trip to Bavaria. I’d planned quite a few locations in advance, as you do, and one of them was quite a famous shot from above the Schlegeis dam. This particular shot involves a 2 hour hike and clear skies as it’s a shot over the lake.

I arrived to fog and rain. And when I say rain I mean “rain”… jesus did it rain. Not one to be defeated I managed to salvage the trip with this image. I shot it in mono as where was absolutely no colour to be seen and it suited the composition.

On a side note I also enjoyed a tour of the dam from the inside. It was pretty impressive and highly recommended if you’re ever in the Mayrhofen region. Anyway here’s the image, I hope you enjoy.
