This image was taken in the little town of Schwangau, Germany which is where the Neushwanstein Castle resides. The fog and clouds were way too thick to capture the castle on this morning, so I found this little cabin and waited for the sun to shine through, illuminating the fog from above. I only had a 30-second window to capture this image as the clouds closed up very quickly and this shot was gone....sometimes the best thing you can do as a photographer is sit and wait, and hope that Mother Nature cooperates with you...
