There is a spot near Table Rock Lake that I keep wanting to photograph. Given the right conditions, I believe this particular view would make a stunning photo, however I cannot seem to position myself there with any kind of decent lighting present. While spending a week down there a few weeks back I decided to get up in the dark of the morning and drive to the spot to wait for sunrise. I selected a morning when fog was in the forecast, thinking the fog would fill the valleys and make for a great sunrise photo.

As it turned out, the fog was so dense that I couldn’t see anything other than this tree until well after 10am, at which point the magical morning light was long gone. I didn’t get the shot I wanted, but I did get a pretty neat photo of something unplanned. That is the way it often works with nature photography. I rarely get what I expect or intend to get. Nature always throws a curve ball, but if I’m lucky I still manage to get something worthwhile. Even when I don’t, I still enjoy the pursuit of captivating images.
