Canon 70D; Lens 17-40mm; Focal 40mm; f/4(Priority); Shutter 1sec; Iso 100. Used tripod. Edited Lightroom.

I returned to the exact spot where I took the photograph of the Swan, to capture an early morning sunrise. When I arrived, the lake was covered with thick mist. Sitting alone and feeling a little disappointed about the weather, a lone oarsman came by. I captured him in the exact same place where I took the swan the day before.

Thank you for your feedback Luke.

Beautiful capture Ken. As far as I am concerned the mist adds to the whole atmosphere forcing ones eye to concentrate on the boat and I can almost sense him moving across the water.

Thank you for your input Deon. After taking and looking at the photograph on the day, I was excited to see what I had captured since it was an unexpected moment as the oarsman moved by. He came and went very quickly. I agree Nadia, mist adds a lot to the atmosphere of the photograph. My initial disappointment was due to my preconceived idea about what I wanted to photograph. The mist, as well as the lone oarsman, however, added to a spontaneous, unexpected, unplanned moment that I was able to photograph. The joy of photography!

I have to also add...never let mist / fog depress you. I feel it is one of the most powerful aids we as photographers have from mother nature to capture mood.
