Nijmegen reflects

Setting sun is reflected in the windows of the Handelskade at Nijmegen

In a few days, the moon will become fully visible again. Since I had some ideas in my head, I went scouting for locations in Nijmegen. One of the locations was on the railroad bridge. Which is very close to the Waalhaven also known as Handelskade. So I just walked over there to see how it looked since I've never been there before.

When I walked towards the Handelskade I noticed that the setting sun was reflected in the windows of the building. Unfortunately I did not bring all my gear, since I didn't expect to go home with a keeper photograph. I only brought my Canon 100-400 lens and Canon M5 for the additional reach due to its crop sensor. Luckily I did throw in my EF-M 11-22 mm wide angle lens. Which came in handy for this shot. The amount of light was already low enough to get exposures longer than 30 seconds to smooth the water.

So what have I learned from this. Even though I don't expect to go home with keeper photographs. Still bring your gear!
