“at the beginning and end of the day, the light is often at its very best for landscape photography”

As photographers we are fundamentally beholden to light, and capturing it is what photography is literally about. Of course, the quality of the light varies dramatically according to factors such as atmospheric conditions, the location and the time of day. At the beginning and end of the day, the light can often be at its very best for landscape photography. As a result, these periods are referred to as the golden hours. Over on p34 of the magazine, you’ll find our in-depth guide to getting the most from the golden hours, and we are sure it will help to further improve your scenic skills.

Ryszard Lomnicki DP Gallery address: ryszardl70 Image title: Connemara What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? Canon EOS 6D, Canon EF 16-35mm f4, f11, ND 3.0 and Graduated ND 0.6 Soft. What do you like most about the image? What I really like is the light of the rising sun, the mountains covered with mist and the clouds you can see reflected in the lake. How did you decide on the composition? I decided on this type of composition because it allowed me to show all the beautiful elements of the landscape, especially the Pine Island. I wanted to highlight the beauty of the sunrise, allowing the viewer to see the cloud reflections on the water, but also the rocky lake bottom. Did you do much post-processing? Post-processing was carried out in Lightroom, where…
