Early morning along the Columbia River brings fog, low and high clouds and the colors of sunrise. I really like how the whole scene appeared in three distinct layers—the fog, the low cloud, touch of color from the sunrise and the high clouds. As I sat with my coffee and camera, I wanted to capture all these elements. I tried various exposures however I could never get the fog along the river looking like I was seeing it. This photo is the best of the lot.
