The forecast was for a morning of thick, lingering fog, so I set the alarm with the aim of visiting a local woodland. Upon rising and looking out of the window, it was immediately apparent that the forecast had been very wrong. No fog at all, but the clear skies meant cold temperatures and heavy frost. So, I changed plan and headed to Virginia Water in Sunningdale, which I felt offered more opportunity under such conditions.
I had a great couple of hours wandering round the lake and seeking out compositions. I was on my way back to the car when I spotted a beech tree, with the few remaining golden brown leaves standing out in stark contrast against the frost encrusted branches. The Canon 400mm lens at an aperture of f/5.6 offered the necessary shallow depth of field to throw the background out of focus and create the necessary atmosphere I was after. As the tree was in shade, the image had some wonderful cool blue/green tones that I particularly liked.
