Intimate Landscapes Winner • Erik Steen Redeker

Jalhay, Belgium • Nikon D7000, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6, f/13, 10sec, ISO 100

This is an image of the River Hoegne in Belgium. Hoegne flows in the High Fenns in the Belgian Ardennes. Due to the height differences in the area, there are many waterfalls and cascades.

This is a great hiking area with a long path following the river. I try visit a few times a year and especially in autumn when the different colours of the leaves explode, and the higher water levels make the waterfalls and cascades even more impressive.

This image was captured at the end of October at a spot near a little bridge that I have visited on several occasions. Although the image came out pretty warm, I remember it was quite cold and wet at the time. I tried different compositions before but for this one I had to stand in the cold water. It was hard to get my tripod stable enough for a long exposure, but after several attempts I managed to get a sharp image - and also keep my feet dry.
