It pays to be observant

At the iconic view of the church of Saint Thomas in Slovenia, I headed out one summer morning after the weather forecast showed the promise of a misty scene.

And there was mist, too much of it in fact……

The bulk of the morning the mist in the valley was so thick that the church remained mostly enshrouded, revealing itself every now and then but always out of sync with the light. Unfazed, I patiently waited and watched for the magic moment to appear. In the meantime I focused on other compositions, always keeping my eye on my target.

The sun rose over the mountains behind in clear view, but again the mist was enshrouding the church, so for this I focused on other parts of the scene.

Finally, after the sun was up, Mother Nature afforded me this brief moment. As the mist cleared around the church and formed this beautiful arc, the sun burst through the clouds above and set the rim of the mist on fire.

It pays to be prepared and observant…
