Autumn mornings

I love this time of year, the summer is a little boring from a photographic view, 24hr daylight is pretty harsh and this summer has been particularly hot here in the North of Sweden. This is a time of fog and damp mornings, I got up at 4am yesterday with a plan to head in to the forest and take some nice shots of the sun rising through the trees and illuminating the low fog but as I drove past Storforsen the view of the mist rising from the falls was spectacular so I changed my plan.

Luckily the sun at this time of year rises behind Bredsel hill so there is a nice light to the sky before the sun actually appears over the hill, I had time to take a number of shots. The walkway above looked nice but doesn't really make a great photograph as your eye follows the path out of the frame so compositionally it doesn't work so well but I don't mind.

There are a couple of sections where the water rolls on itself, here I used a combination of a 3 stop filter to allow a slightly longer shutter speed to show some movement in the water and a graduated filter to allow a little balance between the darker foreground and the brighter sky.

And finally I moved slightly higher up the falls and balanced the water with the rocks and trees on the left, whilst I could make the left side much lighter, I kept it dark to act as a balance, I like this shot. Anyway, a lovely morning, i went home and had a nice pot of coffee!
