Although it was raining when I arrived at the heathland of the Renderklippen in the Veluwe it proved to be worth the short walk in the rain to get to some nice spots just before sunset.

Sunrise over blossoming heather

2017-08-15_0800_SvdW-HDR

Blossoming heather in a heathland landscape, a subject best photographed during sunrise in my experience. So I got up early this week and hoped for some sunlight, a bit of clouds and mist on the ground. I was not disappointed when I arrived at the Veluwe Heathland just before sunrise.
