Photographer's Note

Windmills and land flat like a pancake - surely it must be Holland? ;-)

When I see sunrise images like this one I always envy the photographer and imagine him or her standing their with a tripod waiting for the sunrise and quietly absorbing the atmosphere of a peaceful and enjoyable morning...

Not so in this case. I got up late and was planning to give, what I thought would be not a very interesting sunrise, a miss. Instead I was planning to photograph Texel Island's most famous landmark, De Cocksdorp lighthouse, in the morning light. I was driving to the north of the island when the sun started rising. I saw the mist and the windmill and I just couldn't resist it. There was nowhere to park, so I left the car in the road and ran across the fields to find the best viewpoint. As I was climbing over a fence (some barbed wire involved) I could here a local taxi driver blowing his horn angrily as he had gone past my car taking up half of the narrow country lane.

I managed to quickly shoot three frames before the sun became too bright.

More Texel views in WS.
