We were having a casual Friday night until I asked @bukeii if she would like to catch the sunrise somewhere cool. Nothing was planned. In less than 2 hours we were on the road. It was an intense road trip. If I would like to summarize everything in one picture, I think this is the best one. The Moon, fall colors, a crystal clear lake, the Milky Way and us.
I drove by this spot many times. Never took a picture cause conditions were always mediocre. This was the moment to take the shot and luckily I had a telephoto lens with me. The amazing Half Dome from a distance.
I remember seeing a picture of this place about 5 years ago. I was fascinated. Once I get to one of my dream photography locations I get more excited for the future. So many places on my list to explore. I am sure I am gonna have to wait more than 5 years for some of them but that’s ok. I think that’s the beauty of photography.
I had no idea about the Mountain behind the fog while walking next to the lake. Imagine this view appearing for 5 mins and disappearing again. When I ran next to Aybuke to tell, it was too late. We were surrounded by fog.
