About the shot

Early start at Versoix pier.

Depending on the weather, but piers are always great spots. At 6 am you are usually almost alone. That makes it even more peaceful. This shot was taken during a summer morning with excellent weather.

Using ISO 100 to reduce the noise. The hight F 14 wasn't probably necessary but it allowed me to increase the shutter speed. The 30 sec smoothened the water surface giving additional tranquility to the picture.

The light was really interesting and the colors incredible. You can see the Alps and at this time of the year the sun rises more east just at the continuity of the pier.
