|"The image was taken not too long after sunrise at Mill Lake in the Waterloo State Recreation Area near Waterloo, Michigan. The temperature was around 10 Fahrenheit - what appeared to be fog over the lake was dissipating quickly and the wind speed was picking up. I set up the camera and took several shots bracket two stops apart - I then combined them in layers of varying opacity 100%, 50%, 33% etc. - a technique I often use for dealing with scenes with too much dynamic range. I'm usually not a fan of HDR looking images."
