Misty Magical Morning

Sunrise at the Biesbosch. I know it sounds like I'm always happily jumping out of bed in the midst of night to try and capture something somewhere. Well, let me clear that up for you.... Not álways!

And certainly not always happily.. :-)

But sometimes it's just worth it.


Like when you're in the Biesbosch, one of Holland's most pure and beautiful nature reserves. Sunrise is just the most wonderful time of day there, especially when you're floating around in a little boat that makes no sound at all.


The first rays of the sun heat up the surface of the water and a light fog begins to build, muffling all sounds around you. It is só quiet.. It's like nature is holding its breath for the day to come..


And then the sun breaks through the fog, setting everything off in a golden glow. The fog starts to lift and birds wake up and start singing. The first splashes of ducks, geese and herons send ripples up the surface of the water and the sun turns the whole world green and golden..


Another day has begun.
