Coniston Boathouse

This boathouse on the SW shore of Coniston Water is the boathouse that was features in Arthur Ransome childrens novel Swallows and Amazons.
I had to wait a long time for a gap in the clouds to allow the sunlight to light up the boathouse and tree.
I used a 6 stop ND filter to slow the shutter speed to blur the water and clouds to give the peaceful look.
The Olympus Hi-Res modes takes four exposures to create a 50 megapixel image, it also means the 3 second exposure was like a 12 second exposure, helping to blur the water and clouds even more.

Olympus EM1 MKII with 12-100mm Pro lens. F7.1, 3.2 secs, ISO200 @66mm. Hi-Res mode on tripod.
