Sandra Bartocha - Frozen World


I love winter.
This image was taken at the north shore of Ruegen island. A thick snow cloud was moving in from the sea and the whole scene looked absolutely surreal. I used a 3.0 ND filter to lenghten the exposure in order to smoothen the water surface.

Location: Germany

    Ooooooooh! Sandra, you really mastered the situation here, well done. The sea, then, seems made of sorbet... It makes me longing for ice -creams in summer! ;-))

    'Mystic' is the word that describes this photo the best for me.
