Actually it's just about noon. It was taken on the 31st of December which, here in Denmark where I live, is one of the days with fewest daylight hours... so the sun is pretty low on the sky even though it's noon. Therefore the fog didn't clear until late afternoon.
Wow.. everything in this photo is stunning. The way the light looks, its so unreal... I have never seen something like this in real life, this is the sort of scene that you would only see in fantasies. excellent photo!
