Seneca Lake Fog

I’ve always enjoyed the attention given to the Finger Lakes when the weather creates clouds that rise off the lakes. This happens when the air temperature is relatively colder than the water for a short period of time in the mornings. A good number of wineries cheerfully post photos of it, and I start to think of how I can photograph it differently. From a kayak? A drone? The lakeshore? We had the proper weather for it last week with below zero temps in the mornings that cause the fog bank to slowly rises as it breaks up from the sun warming the air. I didn’t have my kayak, and it was too windy to fly a drone so I headed for Lodi Point before sunrise to find the park all to myself for the first hour. Later a single fisherman showed up that anchored several of my images nicely as he stood relatively still while I composed a few long exposures.
