Sun rises from behind the mist above tulip field near Lisse / Zuid Holland.
Just when I was prepared to leave and put my lack of sleep against horrible traffic jams of the Randstad on the way to the office, I saw skies brighten up and something new unfold above the field of tulips. It turned out to be my favorite photo of this particular morning.
Photo is taken with massive 5 stops of gradual filters - 3-stop Reverse and 2-stop Soft, handheld in front of the lens.
As for the title - "the dot over i" is literal translation of Polish "kropka nad i" which is a popular idiom for finishing touch, something that is added at the very end to round up an otherwise perfect thing. The scenery was beautiful even without the sun, but the very bright dot rounds it up perfectly. And then... the sun is a round dot, too...

Kolejna znakomita fotografia krajobrazu. Kolorowe pole tulipanow z wyraźnym graficznym motywem zbudowalo znakomita scenę. Nastrojowa prezentacja. Brawo!
