Taken at Bass Lake up in Blowing Rock last weekend as a storm was passing through and the fog had settled in. I was taking a picture of this trail and thought it would look better with someone walking down the path. Since no one was around, I grabbed my umbrella and started walking. Applied action with sepial filter and gaussian blur.

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: 1.00, ExposureTime: 1/20 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 28.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 30D
