#57 Mist

The place I was going to visit happened to be a couple of kilometers straight in to the woods.

I jumped back in to the car and drove on. The yellow tree just stood there and was like it was on fire. I had to stop again. A couple of hours later – as I drove back – the mist was almost gone and the “dream like” feeling was gone. The sun was almost shining through – which also is stunningly beautiful with the autumn colors. But at that time I had no time to stop and shoot – had to rush to the next job meeting…
