The first cold Autumn morning in 2012

This morning was the first cold Autumn morning of 2012. Yesterday at 4:49 PM the astronomical Autumn started official here in The Netherlands and Autumn showed directly his best side. Yesterday evening I noticed there was a lot of moist in the air. The half moon in the sky was veiled by the moisty air and I knew I had to go out early this morning because there was no wind which means a foggy morning.

I woke up at 6.00 AM and had to hurry to the location I had chosen for this morning. Sunrise was at 7.22 AM and I wanted to be there at least 45 minutes before sunrise. When I drove to the Onlanden I noticed the clouds were already turning red. Normally I have plenty of time to drink a cup of coffee and eat some breakfast, but not this time. It was playtime from the start and the day started very colorful.

When the sun rose above the horizon the clouds in the sky were very special. It looked like the sun was pushing out waves of light towards me. A very special sight. The V of the dark clouds and the waves of light were very special to capture.

I was a little confused by this dynamic sky. It was a very tranquil morning with no wind and a lovely layer of fog above the land but the sky showed me something totally different. This way a very special way to capture the new nature reserve The Onlanden. Perhaps mother nature was telling me a lot of rain and wind is coming within the next twenty four hours.

When I looked behind me I saw a nice tranquil sight. A lovely sky, a little fog and lovely warm light. A great way to end my photo trip to the Onlanden.

Hopefully Autumn will have more mornings like this in mind…

Have fun out there!


Ps. you’ll find more pictures of the Onlanden at my stock agency Buiten-Beeld.

  1. Hallo Ron. Wat een aangename verrassing na terugkomst van mijn vakantie. We hadden daar geen internet dus kon ik je nieuwe aanwinst niet bekijken. Schitterende foto’s van de onlanden zeg. Prachtig licht en een bijzonder wolkenpatroon maken de foto’s werkelijk fantastisch. Het kleine laagje mist maakt het helemaal af voor mij. Top foto’s. Gr Rutger.
