A wonderful morning with nature… its no joke on april’s fool.
Had a visit to an idealic and serene Upper Pierce Reservoir. Its one of those places where people throng during weekends for a day at the park or just to jog. Its one of the best place for sunrise and the mist that appears on the water before the light of dawn is just awesome. Stillness in the air, added with the chirping of forests birds in the morning makes the scene very peaceful and fulfilling for the soul. I even encountered an elderly lady basking in the morning sun just admiring nature, everyone should do it.
Technicals on the shot. This is from a single raw exposure. Used a 0.9 reverse GND to bring down the exposure in the sky and exposed for the stream/drainage. Added a bit of contrast, clarity and fill to bring out the details and colors of the foreground. The rest is just nature’s magic.
Enjoy, the short 4 day week friends… looking forward for my trip to enchanting Bali this weekend for a short holiday. :]
