Early morning capitol

This morning's forecast called for fog in the Pierre area. I crossed my fingers for fog rising off the Missouri River and sunrise illuminating it into something special. So I packed my gear and trekked up the hill above the State Health Lab and Hilger's Gulch behind the capitol.

Lucky for me I took this shot of the gulch and the capitol before the sun actually came up because the fog just rolled in and blocked all light from reaching the valley floor.

What did I do before I discovered HDR and then Photomatix to process it? This kind of shot would have been much more difficult without these cool tools.

BONUS - If you haven't already seen my photos from the filming of the movie "Dust of War," check out my movie blog at www.cinemasouthdakota.blogspot.com. I'll have even more there soon.

This is a gorgeous shot! I hope you do it again, same place, same effects, with the fall trees. That would make an awesome pair!
