uff...this took me some effort to capture. I had to prepare myself a lot for this shot. I've been there on an afternoon to check the spot out, where to place the tripod and stuff..
Then I was realllly lucky it was sunny but it was said to rain in the evening but I didn't mind.. so I build up my setup and took always two shots. The clouds came above my head and almost darkened the sun before I was able to press the release two time for this capture. It started raining and the light was gone...
Editing this thing took three days. :D I found another workflow...luminance masks, saturation masks, sharpening with masks and stuff..
Michael Breitung was very helpfull with his tutorials :)
Hope you like this thing!
