I shot this at 190mm with my 70-200 f2.8 Canon telephoto - ISO 250, 1/8 sec at f6.3. Finished by bringing out the contrast and colors in Lightroom and Photoshop.
I saw these Alder trees standing out against the dark green pines in the pre-dawn light alongside the Merced River. I was struck by the contrast and bleak beauty of the trees. The mist lasted only a few moments, and just as I finished with this, the sky behind me lit up behind Half Dome.
