“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. ” Henry David Thoreau

I love hiking in the forest in deep fog. Sometimes finding images in these conditions can be difficult at first. This is especially true if you have a preconceived idea of what you will see and photograph.  I have found however, that if I accept the fog, the light and the obscured view, images abound….

Late this November, after a long day of photography in North Alabama, I packed up my gear, hoisted my pack and began the hike to my car. I had not gone far along the river bank when I noticed these maple leaves. They were on a small sapling growing out from the boulders near the rivers edge. I stopped, dropped my pack and set up the tripod again. The right composition wasn’t readily visible and I found myself working around the leaves until I settled on this composition. Sometimes just telling myself that I am done for the day releases my creativity and I see images I might otherwise have walked past. Often I find that I start back down the trail and spot something else to photograph over and over again all the way back. A thirty minute hike can turn into an hour and a half without even being aware of the passing of time.

You know you are doing something you love when you can’t stop. No matter how tired and hungry you are….
