Interesting Photo of the Day: Into the Valley of Fog

Sometimes, the most fortuitous shots come from the most annoying trips. Take Elia Locardi‘s example from Greece a few years back; the travel photographer waited for hours in a foggy Meteora, a sacred site in Greek Orthodoxy, to snap a photo of the famous sandstone pillars and gorgeous natural scenery. But the fog wouldn’t quit, even after Locardi hailed a cab and paid an exorbitant amount to get halfway up a mountain. But, as luck would have it, the clouds broke, and he managed to capture this shot:

Locardi describes the whole ordeal on his blog, and ends on a note worthy of the photo itself:

“The giant fog monster was retreating down the mountain, leaving a path of wet winding mist, and what I can only describe as the most beautiful weather event that I’ve ever seen.”

According to 500px, he captured the moment with a Nikon D3 and a 24mm lens set at ƒ/9, a 1/640 second exposure, and ISO 250. But Locardi, who’s known for stunning HDR landscapes, likely composed the image out of several shots.
