17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Swim in the mist

Mist is quite unknown to me. This particular morning I decided to go out and try to photograph the sunrise over the river Una and as you can see, I was surprised. There was no sunrise, only thick mist all over the river. Well I took the opportunity and started to look for compositions and in that moment I realised why people/photographers love mist so much. I spent maybe 2 to 4 hours roaming around a small spot on the river banks just taking everything in and looking for something pleasing to the eyes. Than it happens, I saw this two trees standing alone and their reflections and decides to photograph them and just minutes after ducks started to form a line just in the middle of the photo. I can't really with words describe the feeling I had that moment. From this photo and this morning I'm in love with mist and misty landscapes and because of that I started to photograph it more than everything else. One more fact, all of this was taken place just 300 meters from home (the city center) and you could just guess what is behind all of the mist.
