"Release" - Clearing fog from Grandview Overlook, New River Gorge, West Virginia

The morning I crafted this image will not soon be forgotten. After photographing in foggy forests along the banks of the New River early in the morning, I made my way up to the canyon rim. The fog above the river was beginning to break up here and there as I drove along, so I decided to head to Grandview Overlook to try to catch some of the action. As I walked up to the cliff's edge, the whole area was enclosed in dense fog. However, within 10 minutes, the fog suddenly began to break up and reveal shapes of the distant ridges, sunlit clouds from above, and even the New River below. It really was a special moment. Enjoy!
