In June last year I did my first overnight astrophotography shoot in the mountains above Oberstdorf in the Allgau mountains of southern Germany. After shooting stacking shots into the wee hours I finally laid down to catch a few minutes sleep in the springy blueberry bushes. As it began to get light I noticed that my improvised bed was right next to this small blackwater pond on the peaty ridge and I used it to reflect the sky colour and bring a bit of structure into the photo. The white dots are the cotton tufts that you frequently find on wet ground in the mountains. This was the best colour of the morning, after this the dawn was a little bit lacklustre. This is a 3-shot HDR image assembled in post in order to get the most out of the light.
