Autumn fog along the San Miguel River, Colorado

When I first composed this image on the ground glass, I was unaware that there were aspens in the distance. When the fog began to clear momentarily, the bottom part of the ground glass brightened suddenly, prompting me to poke my head out from underneath the dark cloth to see why. Definitely one of those OHMYGOD! moments where I was thankful I could operate the camera quickly and get off a few sheets of film before the fog closed back in and hid the sunny aspens.
