A land of polders and rivers: Triptych ‘In the mist of an early morning’ (3)

A day once dawned and it was beautiful
A day once dawned from the ground
Then the night she fell and the air was beautiful
The night she fell all around

So look, see the days
The endless coloured ways

After an hour of making photos and enjoying that special atmosphere, the fog is almost gone and the sun rays dissipate the cold of the night.

The photo ‘A day once dawned and it was beautiful’ is the last photo in this triptych in the series ‘A land of polders and rivers’, part of the Gallery ‘Untouched land‘.

It is a triptych that I made on a misty autumn morning along the river Maas, about 10 kilometers from my home town Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
What I saw was an amazing atmosphere of an impressionist painting. The light, the colors and the scene were perfect… The silence was magical, the smell of wet grass was as an intoxicating fragrance.
I decided to make this three photos with a clearly visible, coarse grain that gives the photos an impressionist feel. As you can expect from me; no ‘post processing’ of the photos.
These photos are kind of special to me; they bring back the experience that I had when I arrived at the river…
