Etherscape РEtang de Vaccar̩s, Camargue, France

Three wooden poles, probably the remains of an old wharf, emerging from the still waters of Etang de Vaccarés, the largest lake in Camargue, France. Taken on a rainy evening of mid April.

The ethereal effect comes from a very long exposure – about 4 minutes – combined with the rain: the long exposure has made the water perfectly smooth and blurred the clouds in the sky, whilst the rain provided a sort of natural flou filter to the entire image.
