I left home by 4:30 to catch the sunrise at Algoma. But, as you can see, the sunrise was not to be seen. Well, not as I was expecting, anyway.

On my way to the Lake Michigan shore…just around the bend from my house…I cross the Kewaunee river. As I was returning home after shooting a sunrise over the lake, I stopped to snap a few of the river.
There is often a hint of fog in the cool, low lying areas of the river, but this morning there was more than usual and the warmth of the still rising sun (just out of the frame on the right) added a great quality to the scene.
Fog is always cool but, I think, one of the more challenging situations to photograph. I find it very difficult to capture in the camera what the eye can see. Even when you can snag a cool scene like this, it still lacks the actual experience.

It was a cold morning with 13-degrees Fahrenheit and patches of fog in our rural neighborhood. This was a scene that caught my eye that morning. I tried to sharpen the trees a bit but the fog in the air kept everything soft.
I titled it Sky Iris because the sun in the trees remind me of a pupil and the fog-induced aura, accentuated by the branches, remind me of an eye’s iris.
