Fog can obscure subjects, particularly for the wildlife photographer, but it can also be used to the photographer's advantage.
This shot was made quite early today with a light rain falling as Willard and I watched a meadow hoping for rutting whitetails to appear. Hunting whitetails is always somewhat of a mystery. Will I see any deer? If so, how many? Will any be bucks? If so, how big? Will I get the shot? For me, this image of a mountain meadow shrouded in fog captures the mystery of the hunt.
Without the fog this scene captured earlier in the fall would not have gotten a second glance. However with the suns rays illuminating the wisp of lingering fog an otherwise everyday scene in Pennsylvania's elk country becomes an image of beauty.
