Make no mistake, some of my images take years to achieve, and my determination to capture the right image knows no limits, as was the case here. Captured on the banks of the River Braan, there is only a very brief window of opportunity during the autumn when the foliage is this pale colour before the leaves are shed. Add to that, that the river is situated in a steep ravine, so there is never any direct light to enhance the scene. I knew however that if there were clouds above and lit during a sunset, that the light would be reflected in the river beneath, providing a stunning colour contrast to the scene. It was 12 years of coming here, year after year before all the conditions came together and this is the result – one of my proudest achievements – one my best selling image to date!
