You never know when an image is going to happen, that’s one of the great things I love about photography, the unexpected. Yesterday morning after dropping my son off at school I spotted some patchy fog nearby and decided to investigate. Turns out some geese were getting ready to head out against some great backlight. I usually try to travel with a body and 100-400mm on my seat, just for these sort of occasions and glad I had it with me this time!
While exploring near the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park I was treated to an amazing morning with a thick blanket of fog covering the valley floor with Heavy Runner Mountain rising up out of the mist, creating a simple but powerful scene.
I was going through my archives tonight and thought I would share an image I took a few years back in western Montana. I love those mornings when you get that perfect combination of fog and early morning light, creating a much more dramatic landscape in an otherwise average scene. A good example of how the power of light and elements can help transform and shape your images.
