I walked for more than 5KMs to the shooting spot, which I have forgotten the name, only to find out to my disappointment that the fog was too thick, covering almost every thing beneath it. Feeling tired and upset I decided to walk back to my vehicle. Another tortuous 5KMs I said to myself. As I looked up into the sky, I noticed this marvelous view, the golden sunlight shinning on the trees with the blue sky as background rendered such a beautiful composition.

Quickly I dropped my tripod and backpack and took out my wide angle lens and started shooting. I metered the sky and bracketed.

When I examined the raw files, I was happy to find that the results were very close to what I had seen. The tiring 5KMs seemed worth it. Remind me, also, that the next time I walk, not only do I have to look forward but upward as well.
