During the Winter and Spring seasons we have beautiful clouds in the sky in Central California. In addition the landscape is green. During the Summer and fall the clouds are usually blue and the green turns to yellow or brown.
After the last Spring storm I went out this morning to photograph at lake Yosemite which is located just outside my hometown Merced, CA. In order to create this image I used a tripod very close to the ground. I mounted several ND and a graduated ND filter to get an exposure time of 8 seconds to smooth out the waves on the lake surface. In addition I used a f20 aperture setting on my super wide angle lens to get as much depth of field as possible.
