Gold, Cold, Morning!
Wow, that was a good morning. For the last weeks I had been biking to work seeing all the gorgeousness that comes with this season. The cold nights and relatively high temperatures during day breeds morning fog and dew. Lovely mornings in the making. Getting up early (yawn) I wanted to beat the sun to the morning and get the usual heathland in a hopefully not so standard way. When I arrived there was lots of fog over patches of water spilling into the heathland.
While nice before the sun awoke it became almost golden after sunrise! All the fog radiated with this golden hue. After stepping just a bit too far into the water I got wet feet. Well, if its worth doing, it’s worth overdoing. Stepping into the water up to my knees into the (really) cold water I reached a spot with a pleasing visual composition. This provided both wide landscape shots and tight crops of pure color. Carefully composing the scene including the sun, it’s reflection and the fog provided an image showing the gold essence of the morning. I still have a smile on my face!
