Monochromatic Inspirations Winner • Dimitar Aleksov

Seven Rila Lakes, Bulgaria
Nikon D750, Nikon 20mm f/1.8, f/8, 13sec, ISO 100

This picture was captured at Seven Rila Lakes in the Rila Mountains of Bulgaria.

I was waiting for the blue hour but heavy clouds came very quickly. The picture was captured intentionally for black and white, as there are still remains from the snow and some ice in Trilistnika Lake. In addition, the clouds created a dramatic effect.

It was very dark and very difficult to focus. I used live view and the brighter snow spots to focus manually. Luckily I took the picture just before the storm started.
