Searching for Light

The idea behind this image is old and had regularly been popping up in my mind for some time when I finally decided to carry it out and try to make a photo out of it. I went to a geothermal area not far from my home and took a hat, an overcoat and a scarf with me and of course also my camera equipment. The weather was selected and just like I wanted it, bright sunny day and a bit windy. On the spot I set my camera on the tripod against the sun in the middle of the geothermal area where the steam was rather thick and moving by the wind in front of the sunlight. After I had put my coat and hat on I walked slowly through the steam in front of the camera while shooting using the self timer.
