Contrast is your friend

I love when this situation happens.  A brooding dark sky with the chance of sun breaking through the clouds.  When I shoot, I am constantly looking at the sky to see what is going on.  Looking  for changing conditions and anticipating what might happen.  In this case, I anticipated  the sun and waited for it.  It happened and created the drama I was hoping for.  Another right answer from Hidden Lake.

    It also helps to have no wind.
    Beautiful work John.

    A very unusual looking meteorological event – brewing storm but no wind. ND filter on the water line or is this even exposure of the trees and their reflection a result of the unusual conditions?

    It was processed from one exposure. No ND needed.

    Another sublime image – you need to have a show of your best work. Have you exhibited your work in a gallery yet?
