The first of May found me driving through dense fog in Sequoia National Park. Climbing out of the fog, it started to snow. Instead of a pleasant day of enjoying the majestic trees, there was a choice of fog or snow. And, even though the snow was minimal, the number of folks visiting with no experience whatsoever of driving in even a half inch of snow closed the road with multiple spin outs. I took this photo at the place where they had set up a road block and turned folks around. While waiting for the snow plow (!), I got this photo of the trees.
While tilting the camera up created some perspective distortion, it cut out the traffic jam. And when I tried adjustments for removing the distortion, it tended to make the image less dramatic.
Camera: Nikon D810 Lens: Nikon 28-300mm set at 28mm ISO 100 1/200 sec f/7.1
