The for­est to the left of the tarn was home to hun­dreds of sil­ver birch trees, whose leaves had just burst open around the lake. The com­bi­na­tion of these fresh leaves and the bright sil­very bark on the trunks were re­flect­ing brightly in the wa­ter. Car­men en­cour­aged me to fill the frame, so I com­posed a tight crop with the wa­ter’s edge al­most cen­tral in the im­age to en­hance the sym­me­try cre­ated by the tarn. I used sim­i­lar set­tings as be­fore, so f/11 and ISO100. Forests are usu­ally quite dark and my D5100 wanted to go longer with the shut­ter speed to achieve that 18% grey mid­tone, but to get it look­ing as close as pos­si­ble to what I saw in front of me I had to dial in -2 stops of ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion.
