It was a Sunday walk in the fresh winter air. However, when in the afternoon the wind stopped and the temperature started to fall dramatically, mist started to form. Then, I spotted a very interesting group of trees projecting from the ground fog. The last beams of the setting sun lit the tree clumps for a moment, giving them a golden colour. My main inspiration was the rare weather condition and the fog, which covered the ground with its veil, leaving only the tree tops, which in the sun looked like a golden island.
