Nestled in the town of Hintersee, Germany, this cove fogs our minds with peaceful thoughts of a world away from the hustle and bustle. One could sit on the water’s edge for hours only to hear the soft waves tickle the stones surrounding the bank. Over time, of course, moss had found its home on these water-smoothed stones, painting the water a magnificent cool green. In all of this, we can’t help but notice the patriarch stone presiding over the lagoon. With father and son standing atop this aged rock, our fog is cleared only to give way to a scene that promises to remain ever green.
When I woke up ready to shoot, I was greeted with a wall of fog that seemed to shatter any hopes I had of partly cloudy skies and perfect lighting. Nevertheless, I ventured out to see if a moody shot was in my midst. What I found exceeded what I had hoped. While driving, a rocky ridge caught my eye engulfed in a thick fog that showed no sign of lifting. Still, I waited with my tripod set. About to pack up, the fog slowly but surely began snake its way back behind the mountain creating the perfect clearing for a thin line of trees to emerge; cutting the fog with their rough edges. What started out as a gloomy day, ended as a successful expedition into the mist of the mountains.
