Magic Cottongrass

Text is shorter, picture is better. May be my best sunrise Cottongrass (Eriophorum angustifolium/Veenpluis) photo sofar. I used a soft gradiƫnt ND filter to balance the image a bit and at the same time keep the diffuse fog structure.

* Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 16-35mm/f4 @ 16mm; ISO-200, f16, 1/2s; ND2 soft gradient filter; tripod.
