Morning Mist - Autumn Impressions
Autumn colours and morning mist mixed with bright morning sunrays. A promise for a beautiful day. "The UFO is coming! :)"
I took the shot on October 7 2007: a cloudless Sunday morning. It was rather cold so there was morning mist. Despite a late Saturday night I took my bike at 8.00 AM together with my Canon 350D and my Canon EF 24-105 mm f/4 L IS lens. I headed for a nearby nature-area, called 'The Kaaistoep', close to my home city Tilburg, The Netherlands.
This shot was taken on a crossingpoint of the bikeroad and a dirtroad on a spot where you wouldn't expect such opportunity. The sunlight is filtered by the - already disappearing - morning mist and the autumn colours of the leaves. As I took the photo I went down on my knees to get a better angle of the rays.
As I usually do on Sunday mornings I inserted a CD - this time from a newly bought three CD-set with Cantatas from J.S. Bach - in our player. When I heard the beginning of Cantata BWV 170 my day could not go wrong anymore: the beautiful nature scenes I had seen earlier, and now the genial music of Johann Sebastian Bach's Cantata Nr. 170 gave me a top-experience. A day I will remember.
