I was trying for long exposures to try and get a almost water-like effect of the fast moving fog. I arrived well before light and spent a lot of time waiting for the sun to rise. Saw a couple of shooting stars as well. When I finally got some light, there was plenty of fog to the southwest and I spent a long time shooting down in the valley in that direction.
My battery was getting low so I decided to pack it in with the thought I would not get the particular effect I wanted. I started back toward my car when I noticed one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen. I happened to look back to the northwest and the fog was literally crawling over the mountains like it was being poured over them. I immediately pulled everything back out and started snapping pictures from the opposite side of the road.

I did get the first shot above that shows the water-like fog covering the mountains in the background to the left and still crawling through the valley in front of me. It's funny, had I been looking in the opposite direction of where I was shooting when I got there I would have gotten the image I wanted. Well there is always this fall.
Breathtaking, Jerry! Wow, what a truly astonishing pair of images here. They both feel rather mysterious, I just love how natural magic like this happens so very quickly... almost the click of a shutter, really...ReplyDelete
While it's a shame you didn't get what you wanted, this is still some great stuff.ReplyDelete
