Workflow: Sometimes you have to get dirty to get a good shot. For this one I had to go down as much as possible what meant for me: Get down there in the mud of the Vistula riverbank.

I opened the aperture as much as possible and put the ISO to 400 to have an as short as possible exposure time. Only that way I could capture the clouds the way I wanted. As the Vistula was incredible calm, it was no problem to get a perfect reflection even with the short exposure.

The Wawel is part of the UNESCO World Heritage
