When my alarm clock went off this morning, I hesitated if I should go as I was very tired and the idea/feeling to be out in the dark alone scared me a bit. This fear is more a kind of mindfuck (excuse me) as nobody is out there (mostly......one well hidden photographer almost scared me to death last winter) and it is only temporary as the fear always disappear as soon as I leave the forest and enter the heath area.
When I entered the area the sky started showing the first orange/red/pink colours and when I found my spot I started to catch the colours together with the moon. As I saw and hear some birds (geese) leaving and coming (spoonbills and herons) I walked to the lake and while I busy to 'catch' a pink reflection of trees in the water I noticed in the corner of my eye some movement. My first thought was that some people were walking in the water but it was strange that they had too much leggs. I switched the camera to the right and four deers were entering my image and world for one hour!
Although I was not hidden, the deers did not see nor hear me. I was standing on the other side of the lake and for one hour they were walking around in the water. Meanwhile the sun has risen and the soft pink light were gone.
From the same direction they had come from, they also disappeared. When I walked back to my car I was so happy and thankful for this beautiful morning!
