It was early in the morning, and when I look to the northeast, I saw all the mist rising up from the Llobregat River. At that moment, I totally forgot about the castle and I setup my tripod to capture this amazing sunrise.
In the photo you can see how farms and fields are spread along the landscape, but is important to notice the white building called “La colonia Rabeia”, one of the textile colonies that was constructed on the river at the end of the XVIII century to use the water to produce energy.

As we get out of the car and grab our gear, the sun is already bright enough to shoot handheld with a long focal length. I quickly mount my 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II, set the aperture on f/7.1 (don’t ask me why..), the iso on 200 and start exposing. With shutter speeds in access of 1/800 sec., it’s more than enough to forget about setting up the tripod. Speed and making the most out of this quickly changing situation is all that matters now. As I look next to me, Ron is shooting just as franticly. With the light evolving and the sheep constantly changing position, we need to be as flexible as possible. It looks chaotic but big smiles tell it all. We have a ball. And best of all, we’ve eventually ended up less then a mile from my home. So a fresh cup of coffee and breakfast is almost within our reach. Have a great weekend!
