Sometimes you only have a few seconds. The image below is a great example. We were driving around the forests of Zemplen to find something interesting. And suddenly part of my favorite forest were in front of us, glowing in gorgeous pink as the setting sun illuminated the trees. I stopped the car, we run to the place, but had only a few seconds to catch the last part of that pink glow. Unfortunately it’s moved out of the forest. I quickly set up the camera and snapped away – with an alternative interpretation in mind.
I prefer to interpret this scene as a sunrise, the first spring sunrise, that brings warmth and life into the barren winter forest. The fact that this was actually a sunset doesn’t really change what the image means to me.
