This week we were challenged to share an image where I see a particularly strong connection between what you see and what I felt as I pressed the shutter button.
What do you see? A path shrouded in fog. Perhaps you quickly draw the conclusion that I was feeling discouraged or lost. I was a little disappointed, that I will admit. And, when I pushed the shutter button I was thinking, “Good grief, this fog is just getting thicker.”
The location? Paradise, Mt. Rainier. The timeframe? Last September. The husband and I had stayed overnight at the Paradise Lodge and I had risen before dawn with hopes of catching an amazing sunrise.
It was not meant to be.
Instead, the area was socked in with fog. I thought that if I went up higher on the trail I might get above it. No dice. However, the fog did play with me a bit, sweeping in and out…teasing me with glimpses of both Rainier and the Tatoosh Range before solidly settling back in.
I hiked around the trails for quite a while. Hoping. And, it was beautiful…in its own way. But, by the time I took this photo I was feeling a bit disgruntled about fog.
