This image has an interesting story. I was at a favorite location but disappointed with the foggy conditions. I waited, and waited for the dense fog to lift, but it never did. Trying to practice what I preach, I let go of my expectations of vibrant reflections in the lake, and shifted my thinking to be open to what was there. I found this colorful stand of trees and fell in love with the mood the fog created. Another right answer!

As a side note, be careful when setting your black and white point in this type of image. It is easy to overdo the black point which will eliminate the mood of the fog. For this image I backed off of my black point with purpose to make sure the mood was retained.
