Further down the road from the Elk I found myself diving back into the foggy road with many scenes similar to this, with rays of light hitting the road. This was one of the many and the only photo I took of one of these scenes.
This happens to be one of the few happy accidents I get these days. With no where to park, I shot this through a dusty windshield then forgot to double check the meter and underexposed it a bit too much. I really like the minimalist look and texture these two mistakes gave the image.
