Fog at sunrise

Shooting morning fogs is one of the landscape photographers Holy Grails. When I was in Koscielisko in Tatra mountains earlier this year I had some amazing fogs to work with. Most of the time they were too dense in fact what limited photography options. But a few sunrises were really beautiful with clouds lurking in the valleys. As my hotel was about 700 meters above I had a really nice perspective.

This photo is a single photo (no HDR involved). Editing it was straight-forward and very quick. I just used Cloudy white balance and played a little bit with Contrast, Whites, Highlights, Shadows and Blacks sliders to get nice contrast and exposure.
