The Joy is in the Seeking and the Reward is to be here.

That was certainly the case this morning at a fog filled Hult Lake in the Oregon Coast Range.  Fog can add so much to images and I think aided these two. The first is of a stand of mature alder along the lake shore.  A very simple composition.

As you travel up the lake you come to a small tributary.  The soft light from the fog hanging in the trees and a few remaining leaves plus a really long exposure helped to make this image

Access to this area is really quite easy and if you go in late autumn or even winter there are very few people to contend with.  Such is not the case in the summer or early autumn then things tend to fill up.

Enjoy and thanks for looking.
