September 2015 Image of the Month: Bigelow Range Morning Fog

Bigelow Range Morning Fog, Eustis, Maine

As early morning, autumn fog began to lift from the surface of Flagstaff Lake in Western Maine, I noticed that there were, in fact, two different fog layers. The higher layer, air born above the tree-lined shore, provided depth and separation between lake and the background mountain forms.   A lower layer, condensing at the lake surface, obscured the forested lake edge, creating an asymmetrical reflection, which I felt was a more compelling photograph.
