When I go out to take photographs, I look for beauty in nature. Over the years, I've come to realize that there are certain subjects that I gravitate toward and instinctively search out. The morning that I took this photo, I was looking for the swans that I had been following all summer. When I arrived to the pond, I was thrilled to see the fog over the water. The final touch was the tree along the shore of the pond which had changed color. I really felt fortunate to be there - when three of my favorite "things" came together.
