Theo Bosboom - Perfectly calm

A lot of nature photographers will maybe recognize this: the weather forecast is very promising, a cold night and a high humidity, so most probably a foggy morning! I have gathered my gear and have set the alarm because I intend to get up very early, which means the night will be short and it is necessary that I fall asleep soon. But it doesn't work, I am nervous and restless and can't sleep at all! When the alarm finally goes, it feels very unnatural to get up, cause I am still tired, it is completely dark and cold and the bed is nice and warm. I hesitate a moment, but than the adrenaline gets me going and after a short breakfast I get in the car and drive to a moorland area with some nice fens. It is windstill and beautiful and I know I did the right thing to come here. And than finally, after I found a good spot and after the first clicks of the camera, I start to relax,feel calm and happy and am fully able to enjoy the wonderful morning.
