This photograph was taken during a weekend visit to my brother's house. His backyard shares a property line with Fort Bragg. He will often watch the soldiers practice parachute air drops and flight maneuvers with his children from the back deck. They particularly like it when the tanks are dropped from airplanes.
That morning I woke before the rest of the household, looked out the window and saw a beautiful foggy sunrise. I took this picture "hanging" out the second story window of the room I was staying in. If I had been in a different room, I would have missed the spectacular view that the second story allowed.
It was a bit challenging because I am terribly afraid of heights. So, when I say "hanging" out the window, I really mean leaning on the edge of the window sill. I did not have time to set up a tripod, so my elbows and the sill needed to make due. Five minutes later, the lighting had completely changed and the picture would have been nothing but the sun glaring behind the trees. This is a great example of being in the right place at the right time. I am truly pleased with how it came out and I am not sure I could ever duplicate it.
