but sometimes you do, kinda sorta. And in this case I can say I got what I needed…something a bit different than any image I’ve made before.
As I was leaving the house to go to Wahconah Falls, there was just a hint of fog in the air but once out of the neighborhood and heading west, the fog built and thickened and I thought it would be a great opportunity for that orange ball I had been looking for a few weeks ago. I thought about those nice maples in Hadley and headed down South Maple Street when I noticed a slight orange glow and pulled over. The glow was right behind the trees and I quickly set up and made two exposures before the fog blocked the sun, not to be seen again for a while.
I did eventually go to Wahconah, images to come, but this would have been enough for me to feel photographically fulfilled for the day.
