Traveling between Klamath National Wildlife Refuge and Crater Lake National Park while working on my book "Photographing Oregon", I came across these beautiful aspen trees. Ground fog really separated the grove from the surrounding forest, but I had to work fast as I could see that the fog was starting to lift in the early morning sun.
When editing the photo, I liked the color of the original raw file but felt that it didn't really evoke the mood and feeling of the scene as I experienced it so I converted it to black and white with Nik Silver Efex Pro and lightened all the tones for a high-key image.
