18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Russian road (leads to the foggy distance)

Autumn fogs are a frequent occurrence in the Caucasus foothills in Southern Russia. In the morning, the air seemed to be covered with smoke, nothing is visible and only a gray suspension in the humid, still air. Then, as the warming active southern sun rises, the fog dissipates and reveals in places wonderful pictures with an impenetrable perspective. A future as hazy as this muddy dirt road in the middle of fields and woods, going nowhere. It is very interesting and unpredictable to go into the fog, not knowing what awaits you. And always waiting for the sun and a clear new day!
