A long trip with good friends to my second home Denmark- almost 1000 kilometers on the road starting very early in the morning.
But come along, the night is coming - and with it the last day (night )of the Ringkøbing Vinterlys Festival ("Winter-light festival") in the Alkjær Lukke Park a little bit outside the city center.
When getting there, fatigue was forgotten. Lights of different kinds beamed through the still leafless trees of the dark park area.
It was a festival with UV based scenarios, colored spotlights, lots of articial fog, light rods, musical elements, stages performances, unicyclists ... a dream wonderland do walk through.
The tripod was mandatory, mirror lock, blind camera settings in the dark. So far for the technical part. Finding the friends again - luckily ones with photographic ambitions as well, so despite cold temperatures time was not an issue.
The magic of light played the leading role - such as here in a scene with projections and fog, accompanied by music. A curious girl at the right point in time made the mystic scenario complete.
Sometime you just have to overcome your tiredness to get your picture,
