Sunset at Lake IJssel

Published August 12th, 2012

Yesterday I made a trip to Noord Holland to the windmills of Schermerhorn. I wanted to shoot some Dutch culture pictures just in the middle of the day for my stock agency.

At the end of the day I drove to the other side of the Lake IJssel and ended at the dam near Stavoren.
I didn't have dinner yet, so I ate the remaining currant buns for diner during my walk at the top of the dam where sheep were grazing.

Somehow I didn't watch my steps and ended up into the sheep droppings. When I crawled over the rocks I saw my trousers to my knees were totally under the sheep poo, so I had to wait for the sunset in a heavenly smell...

Landscape photography is a tough job...

Some technical stuff:

Canon EOS 5D - EF 17-40 F4 L at 17m. Lee ND 0.9 graduated filter, ISO 50, F16 and 0,8 sec.

Have fun out there!
