Shapes of Winter

Despite having adapted my Lee Big Stopper filter system from the Canon to my Fuji x100s some time ago, it has not been until today that I had a chance to properly test it in the field, so I decided to take it for a walk in this lake, which turned out to be a fruitful playground for long exposure photography. But it was not until about the middle of the day that the impromptu sighting of a dead tree unveiled itself in what became the best photo opportunity of the journey.

After setting up the camera, filter and tripod I exposed the shot for about 2 minutes, making sure the white parts of the frame captured the fog and cold feeling of the scene. The post processing was kept quite simple this time, it consisted essentially of converting the photo to black and white using a strong, but not full desaturation.
