A few weeks ago I shot all of these photos during this magical morning; a morning I will never forget. On this particular morning thick fog covered the area of the famous windmill village Zaanse Schans (try to pronounce that :) ) in the Netherlands. I was lucky to be there around 5 AM in the morning and take these photos. It was like I was walking in a fairytale.
Zaanse Schans is a popular tourist destination. During the day it's packed with thousands of tourists and it's unpleasant to walk. However, when the tourist shops and restaurants close, the buses leave and the area gets completely empty. Photographing late light or every early morning shows the true beauty of this place.
