Fog Over Lake Estes At Sunrise

Fog Over Lake Estes At Sunrise

"Fog Over Lake Estes At Sunrise"

I think that there are times when you say "Wow! I am really lucky and fortunate that I am a photographer!" This was one of these times. Photographed yesterday morning during "blue hour" (the period before sunrise) I stood on the shores of Lake Estes in Estes Park, Colorado and watched the fog do it's dance and listened to the Elk bugling close by. It is easy to
look at this image and say "beautiful photo" but it is hard to relate without trying to put it into words with what I am saying. There are times when we photographers just really find our soul, our calling, when we feel inside us like "this is home, this is where I belong" and this image shows that to you all. That is exactly how I felt standing here yesterday morning during this long exposure shot. Welcome to my world.
