Shot on October 1st on the Danish island of Bornholm with a Canon EOS 500D and a Canon 18-135mm lens.
Imagine a small wood close to a town on an island in the Baltic. Nice, warm weather for the season. The sun rises above the tree tops and shines gently through the morning mist.
The preceding two days it was the same, but I had early meetings at work both days. Then it was Saturday. My 6th sense woke me up very early, before daybreak. As always when I wake up without any reason, I looked out the window. Thick fog! I got up and watched the weather constantly through the windows. After daybreak I went out with my camera, and shot some foggy landscapes. Then I went to this wood, and waited for the sun to rise high enough to shine above the trees.
Then suddenly the remaining mist between the trees caught the early rays from the sun.
I had to pinch my own arm to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.
