What’s good: Rolling with the fog

A horse looks out into the early morning fog from his stall in a Woodstock, Vermont, barn.

It is never easy for me to get out of bed before the sun rises, but I know that is when I can make the best pictures. So I rolled out this morning and did my usual check of the sky to see if there any clouds. All clear, so I headed out along the Ottaquechee River in search of great light. I could see some fog in the distance and thought that could make good photos. The fog got heavier and by the time the sun was due to break through, I couldn’t see anything but fog. Sometimes it is hard for me to change gears, I was expecting and wanting a brilliant sunrise, but I got fog. I drove down a small dirt road that dead-ended at a farm. I didn’t see anything that made a good photo but I could hear coyotes crying in the valley. The fog carried the sound across the valley and up the hill. I couldn’t see them, but the sound was fun. About a mile away I saw a horse looking out of his barn into the fog. I didn’t get my pretty sunrise shot, but I like the horse.
