Lexi Nemth’s “Morning Dew in Fog”

Category April 2013 /Gold / Color / Second Place
Location Cades Cove, Grate Smoky Mountains N.P., TN.
Reason For Making the Image One foggy early morning in fall,  I planned to  photograph large mammals at Cades Cove area in the Great Smoky Mountains NP.  I looked around at a good spot, but I did not see elk, wild boar or black bear. However,  this morning dew covered half broken spider web caught my eyes. The back-lit dew drops sparkled on it just like pearls on a fine necklace.  I took the picture with my telephoto lens wide open, isolating the spiderweb from the surroundings.
