Sometimes, the best shots are right outside the back door. This photo was taken down at the end of Tom Porter's driveway. He noticed the colors at the horizon as they were building, and he grabbed his DSLR and ran out to the road. Porter had always wanted to capture the sunrise or sunset in fog like this, and he was rewarded with several "keeper" images.
