Last Sunday morning whilst away on a 4-day work trip an arresting scene greeted me as I braved the early, frosty start. The fog in the low-lying gullies was thick, yet the sun bright and clear on the wind-farm on the ridge. The hill behind me towards the rising sun in the East kept the foreground in deep shadow, and it is the contrast of that with the glowing fog in particular that was, for me, special.

No particular requests here, but delighted if y’all want to have a play.

My current (it varies frequently) interpretation:

No birds (surfing or water-skiing) were harmed during this process.

I have tried to emphasise the glowing foglines against the rest of the image - perhaps not very successfully!

I did try to take on the fog, using masked ColorBalanceRGB. Maybe too heavy-handed, but I tried to restrain myself.

Similar to @Santiago-Ignacio . I tried to enhance the illuminated areas because these are the most interesting viewpoints. Very nice photo!
