A Look Back—Sailboat And Mist

Photograph of a sailboat on a quiet lake in Kings Canyon National Park, CaliforniaOn an early morning run around Hume Lake in Kings Canyon National Park, I saw the mist rising around the sailboat and knew I had to come back before the light changed. I sprinted back for the camera and then back again to the lake. A lot of work, but worth it!
