[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An oldy from last summer.

This was one of those photos where having some knowledge of the location and luck will help. I had scouted the location before and from photos made by other photographers, I knew this was a stunning location. I had the luck that just before I arrived the rain had stoped allowing for some wonderful evening fog. The light was broken most wonderfully and turned the entire sky into an almost similar color as the blooming heather.

All in all, I was lucky with the weather, the sky and the fog

Hi Niek,
Ik begrijp dat je heel erg tevreden kan zijn over dit plaatje.
De kleurencombinatie van de hei op de voorgrond en de prachtig door het zonlicht gekleurde lucht passen perfect bij elkaar. De mist zorgt voor de extra sfeer in het geheel.
Fijne zondag

Hi Niek,
very nice artistic photo. I like these violet colours. Also nice sky and background. I like this fog, too.
Thanks for sharing,

Hallo Niek,
Schitterende foto. Sfeer en kleurencombinaties zijn prachtig. Perfecte plek om zo'n beauty te maken. Ook wat de compositie betreft.

Surely the most astonishing point in this frame is the incredible color gamut, Niek! The colors of the flowers matching those of the sky and the effect is truly remarkable! The fog in the background reinforces the dynamics of the colorful scene! Unfortunately, the positive feelings interrupt here. There isn't much else to discover around. Ones, the image is converted to black & white, its power fades dramatically. The big tree in the background can not be described as the main focal point I think. The tall meadow grass in the foreground on left blocking the view rather than adding some aesthetic contribution in the frame! My opinion of course, Niek!

Hello Niek,
Exceptional landscape. The pink colors of the flowers are matching those of the sky and this is truly a fantastic moment and very rare. Lovely composition with outstanding details, sharpness and great focus.

Hi Niek.
What a pictorial scene and unusual lovely colours. Excellent selection of POV, amazing similarity of colours of the clouds and flowers. Perfect use of ultra wide lens. Well done.

Yes, luck played a role, and so did YOU! It's beautifully planned and executed.

I suppose you might have cropped out the smaller tree and, retaining the same aspect ratio, cropped a bit off the top. In some ways though it loses a bit of strength then. I guess the trick is to think of other possibilities whilst still in the field and take images from various vantage points.

Hello Niek,
Your pre-scouting really paid off in this stunning landscape photo. The beautiful blooming flowers, the fog and the gorgeous sky combined for an awesome image. The vertical composition works nicely for this particular shot. Well done!!

Hi Niek,
Sure is well timed and definately clever planning.Amazing pinkish haze throughout with nice depth, maybe slightly more cropped off the top, overall brilliant haze, well done.

Very nice pink tonation of Calluna complementary to pint tint on the clouds. Did you used some pink filter on the sky? Nice place.
