The cold light of day

After a cold night, morning sunlight shoots through the mist, inspiring Your Shot member Andrew George to capture the moment during his visit to the Oisterwijkse forests and fens in Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands. “The light is the most important ingredient,” he writes. “I visit this place often through every season. I usually walk around this fen and let the light guide me. When I came across this scene, I noticed the sun rays in the back and a kind of curtain of trees in the front. It was like an opening of a theater play. Everything fell into place.”
