The Rogaliński Landscape Park is famous in Poland and beyond for its ancient oaks. It is located in the Greater Poland Voivodeship, on the Warta River and is a real mecca for nature and landscape photographers. At the end of summer, I decided to go there myself, hoping the warm days and cold nights would result in a charming fog at dawn.
I must mention that it was my first trip to this place, which is 170 km away from my home. I started my expedition the day before, in the afternoon, to explore the area. The real outdoor photography was to take place the next morning. I was there at the blue hour - the meadows were covered in fog, and the oaks looked very mysterious.
I waited for the sun to rise so its rays would beautifully disperse in the fog and illuminate the trees. Then, at home, I only did some light processing in Photoshop - contrast enhancement, colour saturation, dodge and burn. One thing I didn't even think about during the outdoor adventure was taking… wellingtons. The morning dew completely soaked my shoes, but it was still worth it.
