The colors in this photo transform from pink and yellow at the top to blue and eventually dark gray at the bottom. I had to be patient yet move fast to capture the figures on the pier against the beautiful background. The sunlight filtering through the fog hitting the columns in the distance created the dream-like effect important to this scene. But the light was changing quickly, the fog was patchy, and the silhouettes on the pier posed another problem. Depending on how the figures moved, they sometimes looked like blobs against the water. I had to wait for the optimal moment when the shapes became distinguishable as man and dog.
