Dawn

Sometimes when you go out and try to take pictures of something that you had in mind, you will end up with a completely different photo. I managed to be here for the perfect sunrise on this beautiful summer dawn.   

This was shot at Tuusulanjärvi, Finland shot with the Nikon D800 and 16-35 mm f/4 VR - lens. 

I used one of my favorite fog presets (Vivid Sunrise) to edit this photo. See below before & after photos:

Endless Depths

A self portrait I took about a week ago at the lake..
The night was quite chilly but the water was warm. Loved to be there. 

I hope everyone a great weekend and Happy Mid Summer to all my followers! :)

Equipment:
Nikon D800
Nikon 16 - 35 mm f/4.0 VR

Technique: 
I used manual focusing on this scenery and self timer 20 sec. After I was satisfied with the composition and focusing I started to walk in the water. After the first few shots I got back to the camera and aimed it up to make this vertorama. I then blended the images in Photoshop and then got back to Lightroom 5 to add slight vignetting and colors in Split Tone to slightly blueish tone.
