Smoke On The Water
"Smoke on the Water" An old wooden cabin sits on the edge of an open Carolina pasture as early morning clouds dance across the mirrored finish of a still water pond. (2014)
Photographer's Note - Foggy mornings in eastern North Carolina can be very fleeting. As a photographer you have only about a half hour...maybe a little more... once the sun peeks over the horizon before the fog is burned off. This limits logistically how many places one can visit before time runs out and the conditions change. I always have a list of go to places when such weather conditions present themselves. When I first photographed this lone log and chinking constructed cabin by a country pond, I always imagined what it would be like to wake up one early morning and open the wooden door on that cabin and be socked in by a thick fog rolling in across that open pasture. I was lucky and blessed to get the chance to visit the cabin on one such perfect morning.
