This week I am taking a break from the fall color and picking a photo from a rare foggy and wet day in the mountains, Standing Up To The Fog. I took this while driving down to 4 Mile Rd from Sugarloaf just west of Boulder. Boulder had been under siege from some rain and fog for a couple of days and I had already bailed on my plans for taking photos that day. I just happened on this scene while traveling between two Open Studio sites and was glad that I still had my camera with me. The isolation of the one tree from the rest that all all shrouded in fog as well as the ice forming on the needles is what attracted me to the shot. With the fog the scene was very monochrome anyway so the conversion to black and white was a natural one. I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out and it reminded me that having your camera with you is many times half the battle.
