Every nature photographer has a favorite time to shoot. My favorite magic hour (sometimes it is longer) is usually found in the morning. When I see fog hanging over the mountains before sunrise it is time to hit the trails. Today the fog was a gently tide undulating through the Forest. One moment heavy with low visibility then receding to reveal Deer feeding above the trail. As the sun began to rise the fog went from grey to gold, then aqua and blue. (more photos of this hike will be in future blogs)
I had taken a photo where the light was gold and the fog had an aqua cast. Honestly I thought there is my favorite shot of the day. About 20 steps down the trail a heavy bank of fog rolled up as the sun was rising above the ridge to my right. I turn and watched as it appear all color vanished and I was left with magical landscape of fog and light in black and white.
Love to ALL!
