A few weeks ago, I bought a new tripod (Manfrotto 055 CXPro4) and ballhead (MH054) and I was looking for an opportunity to test my new equipment. A few days later, on a (very) early Saturday morning, I could not sleep anymore and the weather was looking perfect for some mist low on the ground: it had rained for a few days, the night was relatively cold and the day was supposed to be sunny. So I jumped out of bed, picked up my equipment and drove a few km to be around the village of Perk just in time for sunrise. You may have already seen an earlier image taken at the same spot but I think that this one is better. The mist and colours were just right. This time, I also had enough time to build a panoramic image by taking a series of 7 vertical pictures that I later combined to give an image that would be 150 x 50 cm if printed at 300 dpi!
And, by the way, the tripod and ballhead are a pleasure to use once I got used to the ballhead.
