Mist has always fascinated me. It takes away pieces of the framed subject and replaces it with mystic. It sparks my creativity as a photographer, and that of the audience. People’s imagination gets cranked up. We have our fair share of mist here in the Netherlands. It is the first thing I hope for when I check the weather before I go out taking photos.
I love wandering through the mist. Just me and my camera lost in a mystical world. It doesn’t only have a visual impact, but all sounds are silenced as well.
In the mist I have to work harder to get that specific image I want to show to the viewer. The framing and content is not only chosen by me, but is heavily influenced by the circumstances. But .. in the end it’s all worth it.
