This photograph is not what it seems to be. On first look it looks like a shot of a foggy scene. However, if ones looks closer, there are parts of the trees that are lit up by the sunlight and other parts that are obscured by 'fog'.
The scene is actually back lit by the sun with mist coming off of a nearby waterfall. It was almost a 'rain' event as we were getting soaked with the water falling all around us. In addition, since I was shooting into the sun, controlling flare was a pain as there was water droplets falling on the lens. Above us was blue sky. This beautiful scene lasted about 3 minutes. Luckily (with some good judgment) I was able to get what I wanted.
Hand Held, 1/320 sec; f5.6, using Nikkor 24-70 @ 70mm, Nikon D800E (who said you can't shoot handheld with a D800? This looks great on 24X36 print)
