Artist's Description

Sunrise over one of the little lakes at Diemer woods (Diemerbos) ~ a few ducks take-off to better waters…
Diemen, near Amsterdam SouthEast, the Netherlands

When I opened my eyes as I woke up this Sunday morning, first thing I saw was the pink-red colours of the sky in the east… I just new that this would be a perfect morning to go out and make some pics, and today, after a long time, was the first day I could make time free for it. But if I wanted to go, I had to decide and act quickly, since sunrise was already well on it’s way…
So I jumped out of bed, dressed in five minutes, grabbed my camera and a quickly prepared breakfast… Ten minutes later, I was on my bicycle, riding in fast speed, to the nearby nature area where I knew I could make great pics…

Was it worth the effort? – By the time I arrived, all the pink and red had disappeared. But I definitely enjoyed the ride, the exercise, and the moments of sheer de-Light…
And the result?… Up to you to judge ;)
