The wisps were so serendipitous at the moment the large backlit cloud began to glow from the rising sun.
This was another case where the sky looked like it would be disappointing until it wasn’t. You just never know where the light will find a gap in the clouds. 🙂

Thank you, Carol.
Sure can’t argue with the inner light–and, as you said, one never knows when it will shine!

The light within shines without. One simply must look to see it…or wait for it. 🙂
It is a lesson to never give up, isn’t it? I love this.
Not until our last breath, eh? Well, there are times when it does make sense to cut one’s losses, so to speak. 🙂
Splendid. Lovely light, color, and composition.
Thank you, Lemony.
I guess that’s fog, but my first impression was smoke. The unusual combination of elements in your photograph makes it quite effective.
Fog it is indeed. Smoke rising from that location would be quite alarming. I’ve seen some really enjoyable cloud formations from this location and one never knows how they will light up…or if at all.
Steve, there’s some real magic to this image. You have the light, the rolling mountains in the background with mist between them, and of course, the wisps of fog rising up from the trees. And the larger tree on the lower left. I love the layers. Nicely done!
This spot is just loaded with possibilities. I think I must have shot here 50 times over the years and, while some do have resemblance, most are unique. Thanks, Todd.
This is another photo I love because of the sense of movement it embodies. I can almost feel that light breeze, bending the tendrils of fog. As for that light finding a gap in the clouds? You’re exactly right. You just never know when that’s going to happen. 🙂
The possibility is what makes me go out whenever I can no matter the conditions…allowing for hiding from thunder and lightning storms. But one thing is for sure…stay at home and you see nothing but the inside of your house. 🙂
Well, not necessarily. Some of my best sky-and-cloud shots have been taken from my balcony, after all — not to mention that fellow in his dinghy, sailing through the golden light.
Location, location, location. 🙂
Isn’t that the truth! Last night I looked down into the marina and thought, “What…?” Sure enough, when I walked down for a closer look, it was about a 6′ alligator — possibly helping to explain the unusual absence of ducks.
LOL. No alligators here, but my next post will be one of my yard denizens.
