I didn't think this light would amount to anything on a cold January day in Snowdonia: the sun, even at mid-day struggled to clear the mountain ridge of the Devil's Kitchen. However, the nice even light provided by the clouds allowed all of the detail in the distant rocks to show up. An uncharacteristically still day provided a perfect reflection, which falls away as it reaches the camera to allow the rocks below the water's surface to show through. Made from multiple exposures, blended in Oloneo Photoengine and then finished off in Lightroom.
This shot now appears on page 45 of the Take-a-View Landscape Photographer of the Year book 8 (2014 edition) and will be on display in the exhibition at Waterloo Station from 1st Dec to 31st of Jan 2015
