  • Waterscapes: Sun Rising in Fog
    Peaceful scene on a river with fog obscuring distant hills at early sunrise near Cadiz, Andaucia, Spain.

It was Winter and I was chilled to the bone. I attempted to capture the essence of the rising sun reflected in the lazy winding river while the fog gently lifted on a really cold morning.
