Cascade Besse-en -Chandesse

Waterfall nearby Besse-en -Chandesse

Because of the overcast day the light was perfect to capture some nice forest landscapes and with the cascade in the scene  the day was not a total disappointment for me – Kristel Schneider 


This year the autumn season is slow in the sense of the coloring of the leaves and the lack of mushrooms. The temperature is too warm and there is not enough rain. Many of you who are not in the (nature) photography field would say, we have a great after summer season. But normally autumn is  THE TIME of the year when you can find me outside in the woods and getting up early to capture  the first sunlight over the misty mountains.

This week, together with a friend, I  had planned a trip to the Massif du Sancy.  Meteo France had predicted a nice morning.

The alarm clock had been set early and before sunrise we arrived at our spot and waited for the nice sunlight to arrive. Luckily we had some nice hot coffee to warm us up and …..later on to swallow our disappointment away, because the sun decided to stay behind the clouds that day. This kind of weather situation is something a nature photographer often has to deal with. For that day no nice sun rise mountain images.

We changed our plans and headed to a local cascade, nearby Besse en Chandesse. Because of the overcast day the light was perfect to capture some nice forest landscapes and with the cascade in the scene for me the day was not a total disappointment for me.

Images were taken with Canon EOS 5D Mark II | EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM + Lee ND filter + natural light+ tripod.

  1. We do not have such unspoiled fairytail woods in Holland. But we do have fungi too! Very nice moodpix Kris! Technically perfect. Compliments of a nature friend.

  2. It is like you can hear the water, smell the woods, feel the mood of the fall. Absolutely great picture.

  3. Hoi Kris,

    De foto’s zijn heel speciaal geworden met jou timing van het licht.
    Vooral de laatste daar zie Ik 2 harten in. Oftewel hart voor de natuur. :))
    Spreken elkaar weer
    Groetjes
    Lya
