This was taken at a lovely little place called Milarrochy on the shores of Loch Lomond, Scotland. I love this tree because it lies just offshore and is usually half-submerged and had a gorgeous backdrop of the local hills. I was very lucky with the weather and had clouds (but not too many) and nice warm light. I used an ND1000 filter to get the exposure nice and long (around 30 seconds).
