In the pink

I just came back in from a spur-of-the-moment photo walk. I simply had to go out when I saw the mist gathering at the edges of the forest.

It was magical. The air itself was pink!

As I walked along the exercise trail, the wet grass swished against my calves and the mosquitos hovered around me. All around me, there was mist, forest and willow herb – the Swedish summer flower. It’s considered a weed here, and yet it’s so beautiful!

More pink. I couldn’t believe it was real. All alone out in the woods at midnight, with only the bright summer sky to watch over me.

As I returned home, twilight had sunk over the creek. I went out onto the jetty and placed my tripod at the very edge to take these pictures. The jetty bounced gently beneath my feet as I clicked the shutter and captured this scene of utter calm and quiet.

Finally, I’d like to give cred to my greatest inspiration Jonna Jinton, who recently went viral with a cow herding call. 🙂 If you haven’t checked out her awesome photo blog, do yourself a favour and head over there now. If not for her, I might not have bought a camera at all. Anything I do, she can do better!
