After photographing the sun halo featured in the previous post, I envisioned the possibility of capturing the same halo above Pisew Falls, another 15 minutes or so ahead.

I had been here the day before and spent a wonderful few hours in the late afternoon making images of the falls and the snow laden trees.

 

Lo and behold, the clouds did clear somewhat as I approached the falls. I mounted my 17-35mm lens, set at its widest, to capture as much of the scene as possible. I waited for the fog rising above the falls to thin out while at the same time waiting for the clouds to lighten up so the sun halo would stand out against the background sky. This was one of my favorite images of the morning. How many wonderful hours of peace, quiet and solitude I have spent here ....
