The picture is taken early in the morning at Soomaa National Park, Estonia. The park is a protected area of bogs (the highest ones in Europe) and marshes, forests and meadows. We were there very early in the morning to catch the sunrise. We walked half-asleep the whole boardwalk leading to the bogs just to find out that it was too cloudy. The sun appeared for a second or two and then disappeared as if it was not going to show up again the same day. We waited about an hour and then suddenly the clouds teared off, the sun reappeared and we could actually feel the magic of the new day beginning.
