Cypress Morning at Caddo Lake 2

Caddo Lake State Park

Shooting long exposures like this at Caddo Lake proved difficult. The best locations are from a boat, and that is not conducive to keeping the camera steady. So for this image, we tied the boat to a channel marker. I mashed the camera against the solid wooden post and took several images in this manner. The water appeared smooth and the mist rising off the lake gave it a mystical look. I then blended the sky back into the image (taken with a much shorter exposure) for the final image you see here.
