  • This was taken on one of those freaky winter days when the moist air from a warm front moves in and is transformed into advection fog by the cooler snowpack below. I could see these trees, about 50 yards away, fading in and out of view as the fog rolled past. Within seconds of taking this frame the visibility improved greatly so I was glad that I had caught it. My real challenge was to get the scene to reproduce in the newspaper as flat in contrast as I had shot it, but with enough punch to still be legible. It was a bit like trying to take a picture of nothing and have it make sense. Well the proof is in the pudding. Or soup, as it were.
