This was taken Sunday 01/06/13 on the Mississippi in Iowa. We had some beautiful soft filtered sunlight early afternoon. The weather man said mostly sunny. When I got there at 10:30 it was socked in thick, light fog & mist. About 12:30-1:00 the sun started burning through in places with small patches of deep blue scattered about. I got real luck here for composition too as this images is completely un-cropped.
