At a recent Quad Cities Photography Club meeting, one of the high-scoring competition images was On Golden Pond, created by Dale Fehr. Dale explained: “I have learned that golf courses are great places to find beautiful landscape photos. That is where I found this image on a late-November morning at Golfmohr golf course in Hampton, Illinois. I went at sunrise to catch some images with the fog. By the time I got there, there was a light fog and frost on the ground, the sun was coming up, and the air was very still. All of this led to great golden-hour lighting in this image with a perfect reflection.”
Dale used a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 on a tripod with a Tamron 16-300-millimeter lens at 22 millimeters, 2.5 seconds, f/9, and ISO 200. He then used Lightroom to process the photo.
