Wilson's Flats can be a rewarding visit at almost any time, but I don't think it gets any better than soon after sunrise when the Dame's Rocket is at its peak in mid-June. While the fog was expected, the dramatic clouds were a bonus.

I've been meaning to re-photograph this scene for several years now. The idea was to capture it before the sun was up, with a few clouds catching some colour and with just the right amount of mist over the pond. Somehow, conditions were never quite ideal, usually because the mist amounted to only the faintest of wisps. So even though I was at least 20 minutes late (having been delayed by unexpected opportunities elsewhere), and despite the extra challenge of having the sun shining straight down the lens barrel, I decided this was too good to pass up.
