Shot using an Infrared Filter. The sun was shining perfectly, right on the tree, and the clouds were moving really fast. Like it is often with the Infrared Filter, it is hard to predict how the photo will look like.
I knew i wanted to capture the sun on the tree, the pattern in the rocks and the clouds running over the sky. I experimented with different shutter times, and this one is my favorite.
