When you photograph the motive so many times, as I did the Sveta Trojica church, you always look for new perspectives and locations, from which you have not yet taken the shot.
I stumbled on this composition and stand point, on a walk around the Gradiska lake with my girlfriend Mateja Njivar. (www.matejanjivar.com)
Looking at the Church of Sveta Trojica, I noticed a beautiful reflection in the Velka stream, I made this reference photo with my phone and decided, to get back at a more appropriate time for shooting.
First time I tried the very next morning, but my plans were ruined by cold weather during the night, ice crust formed on the surface of the stream, which prevented reflection to apear. :)
Due to work I had to postpone the next visit until next weekend. That's when things started to get in place.
On Saturday, the first photo of this morning was taken more than an hour before sunrise, so the shutter time was more then 2 minutes.
Later that morning moon started to climb above the church.
Because mist is a very frequent visitor in this places, I returned back on Sunday morning and came across a gentle morning mist over the lake just below the church.
Photo was taken about half an hour before sunrise, shutter speed was more than 1 minute.
