Rainy Day in the Montseny Mountains - Barcelona, Spain
Image copyright Camilo Margelí

 

This photo was taken in the Montseny Mountains in Barcelona, Spain on a rainy day. Camilo had been photographing some nearby waterfalls and passed this location at the end of his day in the field. Finding the contrast between greys and greens attractive and the small waterfall appealing, he composed the shot from this particular perspective. As fog began to invade the scene, Camilo used a neutral density filter. The image was captured using a Canon EOS 20D, Canon 28-105 USM lens, a circular polarizer and neutral density filters 501 ND and 502 ND.

Camilo Margelí was born in Teruel, Spain and currently works the city of Barcelona as a Software Engineer. He began photographing years ago and has used a number of cameras, such as his first Yashica fx3, a Canon EOS 50E, and now a Canon EOS 20D. His work can be found on several websites, such as www.fotonatura.org, www.photo.net, www.photosig.com, www.retratando.com, and www.NatureScapes.Net. An accomplished self-professed amateur nature photographer, Camilo’s work has been published in magazines and other printed materials.
