Taken in Jocotepec, Jalisco, Mexico. I´d found this spot shortly after arriving in Jocotepec in the late morning, and thought I had marked its coordinates on google maps, so I could return later in the day to photography. I later discovered that wasnt the case.
Later in the afternoon, I spent 1 hour driving around trying to find the place again but to no avail. Gutted as I was, a storm was coming and the lakes waters were far from tranquil. The next morning, I set out at 6am and fortunately found the place again, although it was now near 8am and the skies weren´t as dark and contrasty as I had hoped, but the water was as still as a millpond.
I set my camera up on the tripod on the sludgy muddy shores alongside the lake, my feet wet and slowly sinking...it wasnt a pleasant feeling, but I knew the outcome would be worth it.
I put an ND filter on my lens to make the skies more moody, and allow me to expose longer. Despite my hands, camera bag and pretty much else covered in mud, and my shoes...ready for the bin, the result was definately worthwhile
