The Wings Of My Dreamland by pestilence The Wings Of My Dreamland by pestilence
t was a lovely morning, got up and started trekking inside the E6 path of the National Park of Valia Kalda, I was enjoying every single moment inside that paradise, the light was harsh and my shooting possibilities even inside the dense forest limited, so I decided I would be heading my way into the path and maybe sometime later I would have my chance.
After a few minutes of trekking the weather changed, clouds covered the sun and filtered the harsh light, it was the chance I was waiting to shoot the dreamy scape of the forest, the morning moisture in combination with the filtered light gave me the best combination to capture the ethereal sense of the place.
I used a double exposure for this one, one with my lens / filter fogged from my breath to give the dreamy effect and one normal capture, I then blended the 2 captures inside the editor using a mask on the fogged exposure to keep the details on the trees.
