Photographer's Note

After a day of rain, the clouds cleared and left a fog interlacing with the landscape. Seeing this unfolding, I raced to the White Salmon River in Washington to find this yellow iris accompanied with a backdrop of a picturesque river. I had to wade in the icy water to set up my camera if I wanted to utilize the iris as the foreground subject. After struggling to get everything right and some numb feet I was ready to shoot. With the sun long gone I was forced to shoot a 30 second exposure. For some reason the flower didnít move the entire time, which was lucky because I was only able to expose two sheets of film.
