There's a bit of a story to this image. It was taken yesterday after sunset and no, the heather was not blooming. It has the autumn reds enhanced by the colour in the sky. .
Yesterday morning I was still in Paris with my girlfriend. The weather forecast in the Netherlands looked great with beautiful foggy conditions predicted for the whole Sunday. Initially I wouldn't be home until evening but we decided to rebook our train tickets to be home earlier to I could still do some shooting potentially. I arrived home around 12 in the afternoon, drove out and tried to find the fog to shoot some autumn scenes. The fog was unfortunately not really dense and I struggled to find something worth photographing.
I decided to just enjoy the later part of the day in the heather areas in the centre of the country. I didn't really think I was still gonna get a nice shot. The sky looked grey with not much fog around and I just took a walk to do some scouting. Close to sunset the sun peaked below the clouds. I was not in a hurry and simply enjoyed the last sunlight. But at the moment of sunset I saw the sky started to burn. On top of that fog was quickly forming by the sudden temperature drop. And the moon rose as well. Suddenly, out of nowhere the whole scene unfolded itself in front of my eyes. All the tourists had already left the area and I was left all by myself.
Like it was meant to be I set up my tripod, framed a typical tree and took my shots. I stayed a whole until an hour after sunset and the fog got really dense. The atmosphere was suddenly really magical. I came home with a shot I totally didn't expect to take. I've been in this area countless of times but never took an autumn shot like this. It almost looks like the heather is blooming. Was it worth rebooking my train ticket from Paris? I think so! .
