The five reasons I took this shot;
1) It was not my intended subject. I actually came to this location to shot a restored medieval church.
2) The bleakness of the landscape. There had been heavy fog all morning and everything looked empty. On turning and looking out onto these fields that go on for miles, I thought it was amazing. Defuse lighting mixed with the brightness of the grass and the darkness of the soil.
3) The silhouetted trees in the foreground. There was something about those trees that caught my eye. Like they were the final defenders of an event in history.
4) The sky. The sun had just started to break through the clouds and burn away the fog changing the light and the dynamic of the scene.
5) Memories. This scene is very similar to several landscapes I took when I first visited Poland (2007), selective colour due to the environment, soft lit landscapes with fog.
