‘This is an in-camera multiple exposure of some winter reeds reflected in the water of a lake in the Forest of Dean where I walk regularly. I’ve blended three or four images together and shifted the colour tones by changing the white balance throughout the sequence of images. The base image of the sequence was an ICM (intentional camera movement) image of ripples on the water – the reed images were then added on top.
This type of image needs a lot of experimentation so there were many failed attempts before I liked what I saw on the back of my camera screen. I probably spent about an hour looking at this same patch of reeds.’
