Behind the Scene Winner: David Walter Noll

Tumwater Canyon, Washington State, USA
Nikon D600, Nikon 50mm f/1.8, f/1.8, 1/4sec, ISO 100

The morning air was extremely cold, down into the low single digits. The days before were much warmer and this cold sudden weather change caused the warmer water to create this beautiful mist in the air. This factor, and the steep canyon walls, held the mist low in the canyon.

I waited patiently, freezing next to my camera for almost an hour. I waited for the air to warm and let the mist rise slightly and hover above the water. I had my Nikon 50mm f/1.8 mounted to my Nikon D600 and slowed the shutter speed down to 1/4 of a second to drag the swift moving water ever so slightly.

As the sun rose, so did the mist, and my patience paid off with this early morning scene. Often times I find myself waiting for that 'just right' moment and once in a while, I get rewarded with a lovely picture.
