Evening and morning shoot in the Vijlenerbos
Beautiful Vijlenerbos in the early light (The Netherlands)
Then at 5:00 am to be back in the forest on time. On the Rijksweg I see beautiful fog banks on the fields. I can also record that. Once in the forest on the Epenerbaan I am completely happy. The beautiful light, nobody at all in the forest except for a single early walker with dog and a runner, I take a whole series of photos of beautiful trails in beautiful light. I see a fox, a deer, it's all there. Then suddenly it is already 9:00 am and I notice that the light is getting too hard. With a wonderful, tedious feeling I drive home again to take a look at what I have caught :)
Some shots of this shoot. As you can see I have added a bit of autumn atmosphere to some photos.
