The weather around here has just been incredible. From 2 feet of snow, ice storms, and cold, its been amazing. We lost power for 3 days, and when it finally came back, we woke to this. It was a warmer day, with slight rain and it caused the worst fog I have ever driven in. I ran and grabbed my camera, a coat and went driving to find the perfect shot. Not saying this is perfect by any means, but I just loved it when I first saw it. Something about the fog with the sun coming up behind the trees, I was in awe. Hope everyone enjoys.

I like the soft contrasting colors along with the delicate limb structures superimposed. Nice composition too. I think the frame may actually add a little to this one. Very nice.

The blended colours, and misty fog give this photo a nice impression.

This is a beautiful photograph. Smog (and mist posing as smog) does make for beautiful sunrises and sets.

I think this would fall into the category of more beautiful than harsh. The warm hues and the fog are all nice.IMO

Great image but the border is not to my taste some people will like it and some won't. 8 ( deducted 1 for the border)
