Banking on the fog

I'd driven by this location on the Oregon Coast many times, but this early morning was different. The small fishing port of Garibaldi, Oregon was shrouded in fog, and the sun was just starting to peek through the haze. The fog was obscuring a busy background, and only revealing the docks closest to me.
Knowing that in the early am, small boats would be headed out for a morning of crabbing and fishing, I grabbed my camera and positioned myself on the docks looking towards the light. It was only a matter of time before the shot composed itself....with a little help from the fog.
The takeaway here? Shoot breakfast later!
