Lighthouses and Sea Smoke

It's not often I have an opportunity to photograph sea smoke. I was lucky yesterday as mist rose from the 45 degree ocean into the 3 degree air. The only way to capture striking images is go out into the cold and check and scout for locations. Landscape photography benefits greatly from severe weather conditions, so pay attention to the forecast and plan wisely. It took me two days of early mornings, planning, and the right conditions to capture these images.
