This particular morning I was planning to photograph California’s coast.  The spot I had found the day before was perfect and all I needed was some beautiful morning light at sunrise.  To my surprise, I awoke surrounded by a dense cloud of fog, which is very common for the area.  I could tell from the thickness this fog wasn’t leaving anytime in the near future.  I left the location in search of something else, not really sure where I was going to go.  I remember thinking how open I felt for whatever.  So I decide to take a small rough road that looked lightly traveled.  Within the hour I found myself still surrounded by the mist and in an ancient forest.  I couldn’t believe it, it was if a dream was unfolding.  For years I had only envisioned coming into a scene like this in my dreams and imagination.  Soon, every so slightly, the glow of morning began to pierce thru the trees changing the color temperature of the scene and of course I was taking shots while enjoying the moment.  However, it wasn’t so much about taking a beautiful photograph this particularly morning, it felt deeper.  The lesson hit me shortly after I left.  Sometimes we are taken far passed our comfort zone and way off our course from what we had planned.  If we are patient and open we are rewarded with a gift that God has been longing to show us for years.
