Secrets of the Forest
Here is what I wrote immediately after coming home to process this image:
"I made a spontaneous decision to go to Poo Poo Point on Tiger Mountain (Washington State) this morning. I raced to the top to catch the sunrise but missed it--I was greeted with this scene instead, with clouds and fog quickly moving through the forest on the foothills across the valley! I quickly took out my largest telephoto and started firing away aiming for tight compositions with patterns of fog moving through the trees. This image captured best the beauty I witnessed this morning."
Seeing this scene tapped a powerful emotional place in my psyche that provided a wellspring to create something truly imaginative that morning, not just the standard sunrise shot I was originally looking for from Poo Poo Point of Mt. Rainier.
