Nature isn't only what is visible to the eye…...it also includes the inner pictures of the soul.
For this shot........up before sunrise, 4 degrees F, driving a 4-wheel-drive up an icy snow covered road in the dark, completely fogged in with 5 foot visibility, standing out in the freezing cold for over 90 minutes hoping the fog would lift, get back in the car and start to leave, the fog starts to lift, get out of the car, set up my gear, and take a few shots, the fog rolls in again.
Worth the effort? Absolutely! I love the adventure as much or more than taking photos.
PHOTO TIP - USING THE HISTOGRAM: A histogram is a graphical representation of the pixels exposed in your image. The left side of the graph represents the blacks or shadows, the right side represents the highlights or bright areas, and the middle section is mid-tones. You can tell an image is properly exposed if the pixels reach fully from edge to edge without a space on one side of the graph, and isn’t heavily going up one side or the other. Ideally, it should just touch the left and right edges, with a nice arch up in the center, and not spill up the sides. However that doesn’t always apply in every situation, for every scene. It may sound complicated, but it is actually very simple, so give it a try.
