“I left the house before 5 a.m. There was mist rising off the lake, and there’s always a good chance for a good photo when mist is rising off water … When I drove into Waterford, I drove by Keoka Lake. The sky was getting lighter, and I was blessed with an ever-changing misty fog over the lake. It can make for some of the most dramatic sunrise images. The mist became ribbons on the water as the morning unfolded. One problem, however: Once it got brighter, I realized there was very little foliage on the shore … I used a split neutral-density filter to capture the actual color in the sky while retaining detail in the foreground.”
