A September Remembrance by kkart A September Remembrance by kkart
Regardless of what a lot of photographers say, there is a great deal of "luck" involved with getting a photo. I am not really sure if there is any greater luck than the weather itself. I only have control over my camera, things like fstop, exposure, shutter speeds, lenses, filters, deciding when to click the shutter. Often times I am presented with skies which are completely cloudless when I wanted clouds for instance and every once in awhile mother nature gives me something to where I am literally screaming at the sky in excitement.

Fog in Colorado is a very uncommon thing and for this, I just happened to pick the right place to have as a meeting point for the first day of our annual "Fall In Colorado Photo Meetup" this past Friday; the shores of Lake Estes in Estes Park. We were presented with a scene that was almost unworldly at times with the rising sun backlighting the fog and creating an almost surreal glow about it. I just wish we had weather like this a great deal more often! The title of the piece...it's breast cancer awareness month and the colors seemed to fit that quite well.
---John.

The only thing wrong with this photograph is that it's not mine. I fucking love this! And yes, the expletive was necessary. This makes a wonderful desktop background.
