One of the most important elements in the image, in my opinion, are clouds. The cloud form has always been interesting to me. They can create beautiful and meaningful shapes. Usually in spring and autumn, their shape is more spectacular.
For this photo, I used my Hasselblad 500 C/M camera and Carl Zeiss Distagon/f4 CFi FLElens. The lens was set at a hyperfocal distance, and the image recorded with aperture 22 and shutter speed 1/15 seconds on Fuji Velvia 50 120 roll film.
