This morning my day started in the dark with the intention to catch the common purple heather together with the rising sun. As I visited a certain area for the last time during the winter, I had no idea where I could find the best purple heather and where exactly the sun was rising....I know, not very clever for a photographer but due to the lack of time I had no other choice.
By the time the sky started colouring orange I noticed that there was'nt much purple heather but a lot of grass and faded cross-leaved heath instead.
There was some slight fog, the sky was orange but I was messing around with my filter(s), more with the holder and the ring.....first I was not able to fasten the filter in the holder and some later, when I wanted to change the position of the filter a little bit, the complete holder including filter falled down in the wet grass. By the time I had a dry filter again, the best red in the sky was gone. As I had more problems this morning with the filters and holder, I assume that it has something to do with me and that I must use them more often.
By the time the sun was rising above the trees I was holding three filters in my hand; I found out earlier that it's better to use them without any space inbetween to avoid reflections. Completely wet, I made an error of judgement to assume that the area was dry, I was walking back to my car with the desire for a cup of warm coffee!
